On Tuesday, April 13, please join the Center for Strategic and International Studies for a Smart Women, Smart Power conversation with Dr. Stacey A. Dixon, Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence (PDDNI). As we celebrate the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI)’s upcoming anniversary on April 22, we will hear from Dr. Dixon on ODNI’s role in the intelligence community (IC). In addition, the PDDNI will discuss her remarkable career path, how the IC is being positioned for the future, as well as how they are promoting competitiveness and innovation.

Dr. Stacey A. Dixon was sworn in as PDDNI on August 4, 2021. She possesses over 18 years of intelligence experience, leading the Intelligence Community at the highest ranks. Dr. Dixon joined ODNI after serving as the eighth Deputy Director of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) from 2019 to 2021, where she assisted the Director both in leading the agency and managing the National System for Geospatial Intelligence. From 2018 to 2019, she was the fourth Director of the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) after serving as its Deputy Director from 2016 to 2018. Before joining IARPA, Dr. Dixon served as the Deputy Director of NGA’s research directorate, where she oversaw geospatial intelligence research and development, among additional roles at NGA, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, and the CIA.

An accomplished leader, Dr. Dixon holds both a doctorate and master’s degree in mechanical engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology and a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Stanford University. She was also a chemical engineer postdoctoral fellow at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Dixon serves as a presidentially nominated member of the Board of Visitors to the U.S. Coast Guard Academy and is ODNI’s liaison to Spelman College’s Center for Excellence for Minority Women in STEM.

This event will conclude with a short, pre-recorded discussion honoring an early pioneer in intelligence, the late Virginia Hall. Ellen McCarthy and Suzanne Spaulding will discuss her heroic career as a spy for the Allies during World War II, in addition to the effort to award Virginia Hall a Congressional Medal of Honor.

This event is made possible through support from Citi.

Book Release Press Conference: The CCP is at War with America [Video]

The Center for Security Policy has just released a new “Team B” product – an exercise in competitive analysis that strongly challenges the Director of National Intelligence’s September 2021 conclusion that the provenance of the SARS-CoV-2 virus cannot be determined. The Team, co-chaired by former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Pete Hoekstra and former Deputy Under Secretary of Defense Lieutenant General William “Jerry” Boykin, U.S. Army (Ret.) and comprised of intelligence professionals, other national security practitioners and subject matter experts, concluded that: - There is no evidence that the virus emerged naturally;- There is, by contrast, significant circumstantial evidence that it came from a PRC biological weapons laboratory; and- The virus was deliberately unleashed on the world by the Chinese Communist Party when it allowed millions of travelers from Wuhan to fly internationally, even as it was locking down movement within China.The authors, identified collectively as Team B III (in the tradition of the official group that produced the first Team B exercise in competitive analysis in 1976 and a second one sponsored by the Center for Security Policy in 2010 entitled, Sharia: The Threat to America), call their report: The CCP is at War with America. Acclaimed China expert Gordon G. Chang wrote the Foreword.The book can be purchased here:https://ccpatwar.com/

UNRWA's Teachers of Hate — Hillel Neuer on ILTV [Video]

UN Watch director Hillel Neuer hosted by Lital Shemesh of ILTV, June 30, 2022. UNRWA has placed six employees on administrative leave after a new report by UN Watch exposed UNRWA teachers who publicly call to murder Jews."Teachers who call to murder Jews must be barred from the classroom for life," said Neuer. "These temporary suspensions are just a slap on the wrist.""UNRWA is trying to pretend they solved the problem, even as they signal to their staff—and to terrorist organizations like Islamic Jihad which pressed UNRWA to reject the UN Watch report—that they don't really object to the virulent antisemitism of their teachers, which UNRWA and its donors know pervades the agency," said Neuer.📕 Read the report: https://unwatch.org/exposed-un-teachers-call-to-murder-jews
