Bob Dougherty worked for over 25 years as an undercover Operations Officer for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). He has deep operational experience having personally managed and carried out multiple high-profile missions in the US, Europe, Central America, South America, and Middle East that lead to the capture of several most-wanted terrorists and the dismantling of their networks.  Bob has successfully worked against foreign terrorist groups such as The Islamic State, Al-Qaida, Hezbollah, HAMAS, Sendero Luminoso, Tupac Amaru Revolutionary Movement, the Japanese Red Army, and the Palestine Liberation Organization. In addition, Bob has extensive experience in working against Iranian state sponsored terrorism, and government of Iran intelligence and procurement operations worldwide.  He’s received over 20 service awards during his career with the CIA.

During the time period before and after the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the Homeland, Bob worked as the senior CIA officer on a FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) – which provided him substantive experience working the terrorism target inside the U.S. and in foreign countries through “over the horizon” operations.

Bob has served as a subject matter expert instructor on terrorism and countering terrorist cells inside the U.S. and overseas.  He is a senior instructor on Human Intelligence and Counter-Terrorism for U.S. military special operations elements including Naval Special Warfare, SEALS, and U.S. Army Green Beret units.

Bob is part of the guest speaker network of SpyScape and one of his major counter-terrorist operations (the capture of Abu Abbas) was subject of a recent episode.
