Joseph E. Troiani, Ph.D.

Commander, U.S. Navy (retired)

National Defense Intelligence College


There has been much debate about both the value of and moral / legal standing of US intelligence activities. Unfortunately, much of the public debate has had a political agenda and is orchestrated on both sides specifically to garner attention and TV ratings.  Dr. Troiani's experience in both Military Intelligence and Counter Intelligence spans several decades, giving him an understanding and perspective necessary to safely navigate the real challenge of keeping ahead of those who would cheerfully annihilate Americans at any opportunity.  Behind the recent successful Navy SEAL operation that finally ended Osama Bin Laden's existence, a network of anonymous and very diligent men and women do detailed, often tedious work, gathering and maintaining information from a myriad of sources key to or safety.   Dr. Troiani will give us an overview and share some of the interesting unclassified details of the recent success.    


Commander Troiani retired September 1, 2010 from the United States Navy - Reserve Component after serving thirty-two and a half years. He enlisted in the Navy Reserves 1978 as an Intelligence Specialist (IS) and was assigned to Patrol Squadron 90 out of Glenview Naval Air Station. He was commissioned as an officer in 1982 and assigned to the Naval Investigative Service. During his tour with NIS he took part in the security operation in support of the 1986 rededication of the Statue of Liberty in New York City. In 1993 he was selected to the National Defense Intelligence College where he earned his MSSI Degree and was assigned to the Joint Analysis Center - Fort Sheridan, Illinois. In 1999 he graduated with a diploma from the Naval War College. In January 2000 he returned to the National Defense Intelligence College located in Washington DC where he developed courses on terrorism, homeland security/defense, and leadership in the intelligence Community. He was also an instructor with the National Guard's National Interagency Training Center where he lectured on Terrorism Psychological Consequence Management, and in addition received an appointment to the Adjunct Faculty of the Naval War College.

Overseas assignments included Stuttgart, Germany, Yokosuka, Japan, Seoul, Korea, Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, and to Norway's naval ship HMS Horton where he served as a U.S. Navy Liaison Officer.
