The Terrorism Research Center (TRC) is pleased to announce that our Mirror Image training program returns to North Carolina for 2017.  Since 2002, when Mirror Image was created, thousands of military, law enforcement and intelligence officers have attended this one of a kind counter-terrorism training program. TRC’s Mirror Image places participants into a “replicated terrorist cell or network” to gain an understanding into the mindset, ideology and operational methodology of a terrorist cell. We are happy to be conducting this training at the Spartan Ranch Tactical Training Center in Maysville, North Carolina. Cells will operate in hardship conditions and will eat, sleep and train as a tight knit network. Each day, the participants will be taught a comprehensive program by a host of international terrorism experts.For more information on the course content, special guest speakers or how to register click on the link below.

TRC’s Mirror Image Returns to North Carolina

The goal behind Mirror Image is what Sun Tzu stated in The Art of War: “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

Colonel Kelly Alexander said about Mirror Image, “this training was instrumental to the success of my Marines in Anbar Province.” The former Army MI G-2, CSM Franklin Saunders stated after he attended the course, “Mirror Image is hands down the best course I have attended.

Iran Stills Holds American Citizen Robert Levinson

Robert Levinson in Orange Jump Suit

Ten years ago an American citizen, Robert Levinson was seized on Kish Island, Iran and has been held by Iran. On September 24, 2013, we published “Iran’s Signals, Calls and Marches” to bring attention to this travesty . There is a link to that publication below.

This last week to mark the date this honorable family man was illegally seized his family once again appealed for his release. Even the United Nations holds Iran responsible for the detention of Robert Levinson. The United States needs to make returning Robert Levinson a priority and hold Iran accountable for its illegal actions. Americans should contact their elected officials and the White House and demand that Bob Levinson be one of the key priorities of the government. For this public servant should not be forgotten. Ten years is too long. The Levinson family has a website with information which I have listed below.

MIRROR IMAGE: TRAINING TO COMBAT TERRORISM RETURNS TO NORTH CAROLINA

In 2002, the Terrorism Research Center’s Mirror Image:Training to Combat Terrorism was first conducted in North Carolina. The Terrorism Research Center over the years has trained thousands of military, law enforcement and intelligence officers in our total immersion counter-terrorism training program.  Today, the Terrorism Research Center is pleased to announce that we are once again conducting Mirror Image in North Carolina.

Insurgents Village

The purpose of Mirror Image is to allow individuals to step into the shoes of a terrorist cell or network to gain insight into the mindset and ideology as well as their operational methodology.   Our Mirror Image programs have always been guided by two things that Sun Tzu believed. “Every battle is won before it is fought.” What one does before a critical incident is vital and if you not only know but understand the enemy one can succeed. For as Sun Tzu said, “If you know the enemy and know yourself you need not fear the results of a hundred battles.”

The Terrorism Research Center’s Mirror Image training program is a five day classroom and field training program designed to simulate terrorist recruitment, training, techniques and operational tactics. This one of a kind total immersion training program places participants into simulated terrorist cells where the participants replicate the  various roles within a cell. Cells are briefed on targets and develop operational plans after conducting casing and surveillance. Each day, the participants will be taught a comprehensive program by a host of international terrorism experts. This unique program consists of hardships and long days. Starting in 2002,  TRC trained thousands of military, law enforcement, intelligence officers in North Carolina, and at Ft. Huachuca, Ft. Irwin, Camp Rilea, Camp Pendleton, Camp Billy Machen, Camp Michael Monsoor, Camp Blanding, Camp Fogarty, F.E. Warren AFB, Canada, Djibouti and other locations.

The new facility in North Carolina is within minutes from Camp Lejeune. With ranges, the largest shoot house in America, and excellent exercise areas and facilities we are excited to bring Mirror Image back to North Carolina. Here are the dates we will be conducting Mirror Image in North Carolina.
