On Oct. 12 more than 100 students, staff, and faculty of the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College gathered in the Arnold Conference Room to hear Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Intelligence Analyst Kenneth Hines lead a discussion on homegrown violent extremists (HVEs) and the threats within the United States. In the photo above, Simons Center Program Director Col. (Ret.) Roderick M. Cox introduces Hines to the attendees.
Hines’ reviewed the history of violent extremism in the U.S. up to the present day, including attacks by extremists influenced by ISIS and so-called “lone wolf” attacks. The presentation included unclassified information shared with, and used by, local law enforcement agencies around the country as they address this growing area of concern.
The InterAgency Brown-Bag Lecture series is co-hosted by the U.S. Army Command and General Staff School (CGSS) and the Simons Center for Interagency Cooperation. The series is an extracurricular, interagency topic-focused series that is designed to enhance and enrich the CGSS curriculum. All lectures in the series are open to the public.
