    These are the guys who actually created the course.  

    And it sounds like this is far from an isolated incident.

    Stephen Coughlin is the Vice President of Strategic Communication Initiatives for SEG, Inc. Mr. Coughlin is the leading expert in the United States on Islamic Doctrine, specifically as it relates to the doctrinal drivers of jihad. He is a USAR Major branched Military Intelligence, and was previously assigned to CENTCOM J2 where he worked strategic communications / information operations problems in the AOR. Until recently, he was a consultant to the Joint Chiefs of Staff, J2 (Intelligence) where he supported Joint Staff strategic communications related to Islamic law on jihad in association with OEF, OIF, and the WOT.
    In 2006, Mr. Coughlin’s thesis, “To Our Great Detriment: Ignoring What Extremists Say About Jihad,” was accepted by the National Defense Intelligence College, and details the doctrinal drivers of jihad within Islamic Doctrine, and the failure of the United States leadership to learn and understand this doctrine. He has taught, lectured, and briefed senior members of DoD, members of Congress, senior U.S. Government officials, and many law enforcement and intelligence officers in the United States.
    In the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division, Mr. Guandolo developed an expertise in the Muslim Brotherhood, Islamic Doctrine, and the global Islamic Movement. In 2006, after being designated a “Subject Matter Expert (SME)” in the FBI, Mr. Guandolo created and implemented the FBI’s first Counterterrorism Training/Education Course for which he was awarded the “Defender of the Homeland” Award by U.S. Senators Jon Kyl and Joseph Lieberman on behalf of the Center for Security Policy in Washington, D.C. in 2007. His training course was hailed as “groundbreaking” by the FBI’s Executive Assistant Director in a brief to the Vice President’s National Security Staff. Currently, Mr. Guandolo advises government leaders at the national and state level on matters related to National Security, specifically the threat from the Global Islamic Movement.
