Herb Meyer served during the Reagan Administration as Special Assistant to the Director of Central Intelligence and Vice Chairman of the CIA’s National Intelligence Council. In these positions, he managed production of the US National Intelligence Estimates and other top-secret projections for the President and his national security advisers. Mr. Meyer is widely credited with being the first senior US Government official to forecast the collapse of the Soviet Union — a forecast for which he later was awarded the US National Intelligence Distinguished Service Medal, which is the Intelligence Community’s highest honor.
Mr. Meyer is host and producer of The Siege of Western Civilization, a DVD outlining the threats to our security, our economy, and our culture that became an international best-seller. Formerly an associate editor of FORTUNE, he has authored several books including Real-World Intelligence and Hard Thinking. His essays on intelligence and politics have been published in The Wall Street Journal, National Review Online, Policy Review and The American Thinker. He has been a guest on leading television and radio talk shows.
In recent years, Mr. Meyer has been a popular speaker on the lecture circuit. He delivers his overview of global trends and developments, entitled What in the World is Going On: A Global Intelligence Briefing to corporations, business associations, student organizations and public affairs groups throughout the world.
Site Editor Note: Herb Myer, who resides on San Juan Island, was the main speaker during the 2017 Lincoln Day Dinners for the San Juan County Republican Party. Herb is a wonderfully engaging speaker with a profound knowledge and insight into the inner workings of our Demorcatic Republic.
This Fall Herb was found unconscious off his bike on one of the country roads of San Juan Island. Herb, and his wife Jill, need all our prayers as they continue to deal with this medical issue.
