A young man grows up in Washington D.C. seeking adventure and burning with desire to achieve great things. He finds the keys to making his dreams come true are with the Central Intelligence Agency. With his wife and life partner Rose he strikes out on his journey that is remarkable, dangerous as well as fulfilling. This is his story. He tells it in his own words; through the prism of his unique life experiences, the Black Man in the CIA. He worked for the CIA, one of the 17 Departments and Agencies of the National Intelligence Community, during the Cold War years. Leutrell M. Osborne Sr., (Mike), tells his story to document the former Spy Manager's history while providing unique insights for others to understand his rise to become a spy manager that supervised CIA agents and assets in over 30 countries. In addition to that he also became the only one of his profession who also gained six years of experience in Information Assurance (IA). Book Design, Edited and Cover by Gary Revel

Between 1957 and 1984 Leutrell worked for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) where he rose from a clerk to become the 10th African American CIA Spy Manager who worked on three (3) different continents in 30 countries supervising CIA agents and assets.

Intelligence Officer's Bookshelf


Black Man in the CIA: An Autobiography, by Leutrell M. Osborne, Sr. ([Temple, TX?]: Jongleur Music Book Publishing, 2012), 148 pp., no index.

Leutrell Osborne began his CIA career as a still photographer, paygrade G-3, in October 1957. (19, 23) He left the Agency in 1984 as a GS-12 operations officer. (140) Black Man in the CIA tells the story of his upbringing and his adventures in the Agency.

Osborne describes himself as ""a light-skinned black man" (31) and the illegitimate son of a mother who worked for the CIA at the National Photographic Interpretation Center (NPIC). He writes that he had wanted to be a "spy manager" since he was 12. (1) Osborne got married and joined the Agency right out of high school. By 1963 he was working in the European Branch mail room and had decided he wanted to become a case officer. With the support of several supervisors, he completed operations training in 1969, (72) before he graduated from college. After refusing a tour in Vietnam (91) and declining to have anything to do with covert action Osborne was assigned overseas, where he describes recruiting agents. He also had various assignments at Headquarters, including counterintelligence, counterterrorism, the Office of Equal Opportunity, and Communications Security (COMSEC). He returned to the Directorate of Operations for his final tour working on Libyan matters.

In Black Man in the CIA, Osborne views the Agency through an African-American's eyes and is candid in describing what his race meant to his career. For example, during his first assignment as a case officer, he "encountered some serious discrimination from "the Chief of Station" [who] had a profound impact on [his] career" making [him] stay in grade for eleven years." (99 - 102) But in spite of this atmosphere, he says he "achieved significant accomplishments as a Case Officer in Latin America." (110) Yet these problems persisted, as he notes, when he was assigned to COMSEC duties and his "superior, Red Neck, was determined to cast aspersions on [his] work ."With regard to his final assignment, he writes that "there were some serious mistakes made by the Division. It seemed clear I was being set up to take the fall." (134) Despite all of these difficulties, Osborne concludes that in 26 years with the CIA. "I achieved my dream as a CIA spy manager." (142)

During the time since he left the Agency, Osborne writes, "I have increased my core competency talents, knowing I can lead both the Central Intelligence and the National Security Agencies "toward better solutions." (144) Black Man in the CIA might serve as an inspiration to others with dreams of working in the United States intelligence services.

Victims of Communism Book Cover
Victims of Communism and Their Persecutors
BuyNow - Kindle/Ebook on Amazon Books

Victims of Communism and Their Persecutors proposes a model of restorative justice in order to repair the damage created by 94 years of (neo) Communist crimes and persecutions. It is an analysis from a mediator's, facilitator's and negotiator's perspective, the Communist crimes, in terms of emotions, intentions, actions and reasons, with both the victims' and the perpetrators' testimony, of what is commonly called in Europe the Red Holocaust, with particular focus on Romania. It goes to the sources of intergroup conflicts, its cognitive factors, its implications for understanding and will make some recommendations for compensatory resolutions. It does that by presenting an overview of several micro and macro-level approaches to understanding the origins, the nature and the dynamics of this conflict, as well as, of possible healing. It details several psychological, social, economical, political, systemic, and cultural perspectives that have led to and are still making innocent victims, from Cuba to China, in the name of Marxism and of the Communist Party.

Without the condemnation of the Communist ideology and crimes, by the world at large, and without the inclusion of educational programs in schools all over the world, on the destructive premises of false sociology that Communism has been propagating from 1800's Marxism to 2011 Chinese, N. Korean or Cuban dictatorships, the world will learn nothing from its crimes, and will therefore expose itself to new abuses based on similar criminal ideologies. In fact, in 2010, in the same year Georgia took down Stalin's statue in Grozni, America raised a statue of Stalin in Bedford Virginia, courtesy of the D-Day Memorial Foundation. It seems that without unequivocal and unilateral condemnation of Communism, including in the United States, the survivors of Communist atrocities, including the political and the religious refugees to this country, -such as my father-, still have to live with the idyllic explication of their torturers, and persecutors, as somehow being "justified liberators."

David Green has a master's degree in counseling and almost 25 years of counseling experience. He has worked on an inpatient psychiatric ward, with individuals with chronic mental illness, with families, individuals with developmental disabilities; college students, high school age kids, juvenile delinquents, people with substance abuse issues, and people with sever injuries that dramatically affected their lives. He is an author and wrote articles and newsletters for businesses and newspapers.

"The one thing that always troubled me", Mr. Green stated. "Was that you could take a persons problem and explain it with a theory of counseling. I always felt that people are unique. There problems are unique. You cannot say that A + B always leads to problems. You can take a person and explain the same issue with several different counseling theories. Are they all right? I am uncomfortable explaining my behavior and my personality based on a theory of counseling. Not all people react to the same situation the same way. I choose to believe that people are more than a product of upbringing or significant events that affect their lives".

Working on an inpatient psychiatric ward David got to work with individuals in the throws of a psychotic episode. Working with chronic mental illness he was able to work with people that struggle with problems on a daily basis.

"At first I used to think, why don't theses people just wake up and get over it? But than I learned that there issues are more than just a decision making process. Some people's problems are physical or chemical imbalances. Others are a personality flaw".
