“For the past 10 years, I have carefully followed Ryan Mauro’s superb scholarship. In particular, I found his analysis of both Middle East affairs and of Muslim Brotherhood front groups not only remarkably insightful but also dependably accurate and consistently informative.
In my former capacity as a Founding Member of the Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection (DHS-CBP), with a recognized subject matter expertise in Jihad and the Strategy and Tactics of the Global Islamic Movement (based on Quranic Arabic), I have always considered Ryan Mauro to be a gifted colleague with few equals, whether in the civilian world or within the law enforcement/intelligence community.
On many occasions, I referred to his articles for insight and perspective, while developing a series of complex, long-term counter-terrorism cases, which often included hundreds of individuals and/or affiliated organizations.
I can’t overstate how many times I was encouraged that there were younger specialists like Ryan Mauro, who were out there, doing their own crucial part to help protect our country from threats, both foreign and domestic.”
