My Q & A With David G. Major, Former FBI Counterintelligence Official & President Reagan Advisor

My Q&A with David G. Major, former FBI counterintelligence official, President Reagan advisor and founder of the Centre for Counterintelligence and Security Studies, was published in Counterterrorism magazine.

David G. Major served in the FBI and rose from a street agent to senior executive. He specialized in counterintelligence and was involved in nearly all of the major espionage cases of the past 30 years. he recruited, ran and handled agents, double agents and defectors, as well as caught spies. Major also worked against radical groups like the Black Panthers and the KKK.

Major became the first FBI official to be assigned to the National Security Council and he served as the Director, Intelligence and Counterintelligence Programs in 1985 and 1986. He briefed and advised President Ronald Reagan on counterintelligence matters and he was instrumental in an administration effort that led to to more than 80 Soviet KGB and GRU officers being expelled from the United States.
