Tracy Walder - The Unexpected Spy: From the CIA to the FBI, My Secret Life Taking Down Some of the World's Most Notorious Terrorists — in conversation with Peter Bergen

Upcoming Event
Saturday, February 29, 2020 - 3:30pm to 4:30pm

Walder’s first job after college was with the CIA, where she worked as a staff operations officer at the agency’s Counterterrorism Center. In this engaging account, she describes monitoring al-Qaeda cells with drones, tracking chemical terrorists, debriefing prisoners who had vowed never to talk to a woman, and following terrorist trails through North Africa, Europe, and the Middle East to stop chemical attacks. She also saw a terror chart she’d compiled manipulated by White House staff to convey misleading information, and in her second position, as special agent at the FBI's Los Angeles Field Office, she both helped capture one of the most notorious foreign spies ever caught in the U.S. and experienced  rampant sexism. Walder will be in conversation with Peter Bergen, CNN’s national security analyst and Vice President for Global Studies and Fellows at New America.
