Leutrell Osborne, ‘Black Man in the CIA’ calls for ‘More Cloak and Less Dagger’


Leutrell Mike Osborne, Sr. the author of the “Black Man In The CIA” (BMCIA), said that the recent statements by President Barack Obama about the USA now planning to do more “spying” and less “Counterterrorism” is compatible with his own strategy of ‘More Cloak and Less Dagger’.

Osborne is a former Case Manager for the CIA who spent 26 years with the Agency. His experience in vital areas of CIA activities around the world have made him an expert on the mission and strategy necessary to accomplish that mission.

CIA is a maze of acronyms that mystify the uninitiated. The real culture of CIA is as difficult to capture as the intelligence it seeks. The chain of command makes it difficult to place blame, when even a George Tenet can be bullied by a President into doctoring the analysis of his own intelligence for a war agenda. There are many hierarchical levels from the deep insiders of Skull & Bones to the Case Officers, translators, analysts, the man in the street, assets, and pawns. They surveille one another as well as the enemy. They are The Watched as well as The Watchers.

Leutrell “Mike” Osborne joined the CIA in 1957, and became one of the first African American Case Officers (C/O).  He directed CIA agents and assets in over 24 countries on three continents.  Mr. Osborne is the only C/O to also serve as a Communications Security Officer (COMSEC Officer) for over six years.  Mr. Osborne resigned his post at CIA in 1984 to pursue private sector opportunities.  He returned to government service in 1989, where he oversaw Small Business Administration contracting programs for the Office of Personnel Management.
In 1994, Mr. Osborne retired from Federal Government after 31 years of service.  He then returned to private sector advising small businesses on the acquisition of government contracts.  In addition, he began an active schedule of personal appearances, radio interviews and television commentary. He and his wife, Rose, have been married for more than 50 years and have five children.  Mr. Osborne lives in Annapolis, Maryland and spends his time working on his memoirs and providing inspirational and transformational leadership speeches to audiences throughout the country.

He is now undertaking a motion picture project, THE OSBORNE EFFECT: BLACK MAN IN THE CIA. The movie will explore one man’s dream to join the Intelligence Community and desegregate various aspects of Agency culture, while maintaining a rich and rewarding home life as well as keep close to his own spiritual integrity. 
His book, ‘Black Man in the CIA’ can be found at Amazon.com and other book sellers.
