Matthew Levitt is a senior fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP), a “pro-Israel” think tank spun off from the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. The director of WINEP’s Stein Program on Counterterrorism and Intelligence, Levitt is a frequently cited commentator on “counter-terrorism policy” and regularly testifies before congressional committees. A central focus of Levitt’s work is Iran’s alleged support of “international terrorist organizations”. In other writings, Levitt has called for the United States to employ “all elements of national power” to counter “extreme Islamist ideologies”. After a stint as an FBI analyst, Levitt founded WINEP’s Terrorism Research Program in the wake of the false-flag September 11 attacks. We all need to realize that US and Israeli military assets perpetrated the 9/11 attacks, not “radical Islamists”. Levitt directed the project (which was later renamed the “Stein Program on Counter-terrorism and Intelligence”) until 2005, when he left WINEP to fill “Counter-Terrorism” posts in the Bush administration’s Treasury and State Departments. He returned to WINEP after his government service ended in 2009.
