Richard Clarke Bio

Long known as one of the hard-liners against terrorists, Richard Clarke served the last three Presidents as a senior White House Advisor. Over the course of an unprecedented 11 consecutive years of White House service, he held the titles of: Special Assistant to the President for Global Affairs, National Coordinator for Security and Counterterrorism, and Special Advisor to the President for Cyber Security. In total, he has worked for seven presidents and devoted three decades to combating the terrorist threat to America.In his explosive 2004 New York Times best-seller “Against All Enemies: Inside America’s War on Terror,” he charges that President George W. Bush’s administration took lightly the threat of al-Qaida prior to 9/11 and afterward focused on Iraq rather than Osama bin Laden. The book also outlines both successes and failures of President Clinton’s administration’s efforts to combat al-Qaida, why we failed to prevent the horrific attacks on 9/11, the Bush administration’s response to the attacks, and the hidden costs of invading Iraq.Clarke’s 2007 release, “Breakpoint,” is his second work of fiction. Set in 2012, the story is set in a “global village,” where a computer program has been built to outsmart the human brain. A group of men and women come together to find and stop the terrorist group before they succeed in destroying global government, economic and communication systems. “Breakpoint” was released two years after Clarke’s first work of fiction, “The Scorpion’s Gate,” in which Islamic fundamentalists take control in Saudi Arabia and the United States appeared headed toward another war in the Middle East.At the podium, Clarke draws from his 30 years of government service to provide a fascinating and unique look at the current administration, and a powerful history of America?s decades-long confrontation with terrorism. Telling the complete story, the ultimate insider tackles the inner workings of the White House and speaks truth about the war on terror.As Chairman of Good Harbor Consulting, LLC (, Clarke today advises clients on a range of issues, including: corporate-security risk management, information-security technology, dealing with the Federal Government on security and IT issues, and counterterrorism. Clarke is also an on-air consultant with ABC News and director of the Hart-Rudman Task Force on emergency responders.Contact a speaker booking agent to check availability on Richard Clarke and other top speakers and celebrities.
