Michael T. Flynn
Lt. General Michael T. Flynn served for 33 years as a highly-decorated Army officer, retiring in 2014 as Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency. During his distinguished career, Flynn fought on the battlefield and ran intelligence and special forces operations against Al Qaeda, ISIS, and other affiliated terrorist groups in Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Africa, and elsewhere. He served as senior intelligence officer for the Joint Special Operations Command under General Stanley McChrystal in Afghanistan, and with General David Petraeus in formulating the successful 2007 “surge” that reversed the course of the war in Iraq. In 2014, after testifying before Congress that America’s policies in the current war environment were not effective, Lt. General Flynn was forced from his position at DIA.
