The HSOFN is proud to present our second presentation in the continuing series of TALK SOF. This segment contains many aspects of the complex global threat environment. This is a thought-inspired presentation by Mr. Jorge Garcia, the former Deputy Director of Intelligence of the FBI.
Mr. Garcia joined the FBI in 1995. As a special agent assigned to the Phoenix Field Office, he investigated drug, organized crime, and terrorism cases. Mr. Garcia was assigned to FBIHQ from 1999 to 2005, where held several positions related to intelligence and counterterrorism, including chief of the Weapons of Mass Destruction Countermeasures Unit.
In 2004, Mr. Garcia served as the FBI's deputy on-scene commander in Iraq. In this role, he was responsible for the day-to-day operational activity of FBI personnel, among others. In 2007, he was promoted to assistant special agent in charge of the Philadelphia Field Office. In this role, he supervised the Field Intelligence Group and intelligence program and the white-collar, public corruption, and civil rights programs.
Mr. Garcia was promoted in 2011 to director of the Terrorist Explosive Device Analytical Center (TEDAC) in Quantico, Virginia. TEDAC provides direct support to broader U.S. government efforts to prevent and mitigate improvised-explosive device (IED) attacks by performing advanced exploitation of IEDs through physical examination resulting in scientific and technical information and intelligence of value. In 2012, Mr. Garcia was named special agent in charge of the Intelligence Division at the Los Angeles Field Office.
An émigré from Cuba, Mr. Garcia was raised in Baltimore and received a Bachelor of Science degree from the U.S. Military Academy. During his 12 years in the military, he served in infantry, ranger, and aviation units, to include a combat tour as an Apache attack helicopter company commander with the 101st Airborne Division during the 1991 Gulf War and as a battalion operations officer after the war. Mr. Garcia left the U.S. Army in 1995 to join the FBI.
He has a Master of Counseling degree from the University of Phoenix and a Master of Science degree in strategic intelligence from the Defense Intelligence Agency's Joint Military Intelligence College.
