     On August 16th, I'll be attending a speaking engagement in Cleveland, Ohio called "Aspects of Radical Islam in the Balkans and Ties to Diaspora in US". It is sponsored by the Northern OHIO Association Of Former Intelligence Officers (AFIO) and will be held at 11:00 am at Notre Dame College, South Euclid, OH. 
     The speaker will be Dr. Steven Oluic, USA (ret.), Dean of Mathematics, Natural and Social Sciences at Lakeland C.C. He is a published author and has presented at many professional conferences including the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), the FBI, and the Department of State. He has also had a 27-year military career including tours of duty in Iraq, Korea, Germany, and Bosnia.
     This topic about radical Islam in the Balkans and its ties to the diaspora in America is relevant to all of us, due to the advancements of radical Islam in not only the Balkans, but throughout the Middle East, Northern Africa, Yemen, Somalia and elsewhere. Kudos to member Greg Moore, Ph.D., Chair Department of History and Political Science, and Director, Center for Intelligence Studies, Notre Dame College for his efforts in creating a venue for this presentation.
     A catered brunch of cold cuts, cheeses, etc. will be offered so a nominal fee will be collected at the meeting site. Due to many of the older intelligence agent members passing away, the group kind of faded away several years ago. However, it is being revitalized with younger members, both lay people and those who work in the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC).
     Want to meet some spooks? Non-members of AFIO may attend this event as a guest of mine. If you would like to attend, please contact me on or before August 15th. You can drive with me (free transportation) or follow me to the meeting site by yourself (Feel free to bring a friend or two). However, you won't be able to attend unless you're a registered guest of mine and are with me at the entrance.
