COL Christopher P. Costa (US Army, ret.) is the new Executive Director of the Spy Museum. He has done some things he can’t even tell you about, but this evening he’ll share what he can from an intense career in the intelligence community. Costa has most recently been the Special Assistant for the President & Senior Director for Counterterrorism at the White House National Security Council where he applied what he learned as a practitioner to policy making.
Previously his career included 25 years of active duty deployed in hot spots such as Panama, Bosnia, Afghanistan, and Iraq. He’s the recipient of two Bronze Stars for intelligence work in Afghanistan and has been inducted into the Commando Hall of Honor for the US Special Operations Command. His career has included human intelligence, special operations, counterintelligence, unconventional warfare, and now…museums! Join us this evening, as Spy Museum historian Dr. Vince Houghton sits down with Costa for an informal get-to- know-you.
