He was selected for ELINT (electronic intelligence) school and was subsequently assigned to the Naval Security Group Activity (NSGA) in Naples, Italy where he functioned at the OWS (Operations Watch Supervisor) providing real-time intelligence to COMSUBMED, COMAIRMED and CINCUSNAVEUR.

Mr. Osborne has also been a US Army contractor for the past 19 years, working for Honeywell and its 1990 defense spinoff Alliant Techsystems as a deployable field rep to the US Army Special Operations Command (USASOC) at Ft. Bragg, North Carolina.

Following the attacks against the US on 9/11, Mr. Osborne has been privately active in the pursuit of the continuing threats against our country. "Long before the revelation of the 16-page document reported by The Evening Standard, I was convinced by open-source intelligence of Iraqi and al-Qaeda involvement in the attacks on US soil going back to the original WTC attack in 1993, the Oklahoma City bombing of 1995 and culminating with the attack on September 11 and the anthrax attacks in the US in 2001."

Randy Taylor, Investigative Analyst

Randy Taylor is a new addition to the NEIN team publicly, although he has been working with Laura and Doug behind the scenes for some time now. He has been tracking and monitoring Al Qaeda and Jihad Militants groups since September 12, 2001 when he decided to hunt the enemy in their own electronic world after the attacks on our great nation. His specialty is ferreting out Al Qaeda and militant Jihad sites, their mail groups, mail rooms, chat rooms and tracking them wherever they may hide in the dark recesses of the internet. He then disseminates, prioritizes and forwards the information immediately to the NEIN team analysts for review, further analysis and distribution to the proper authorities.

Randy strongly believes that thwarting terrorists is the responsibility of the people here in this country and that the sole responsibility to protect and defend doesn’t lie entirely with the authorities and agencies here, as the protection of America and it's interests are a team effort that requires all Americans to be diligent and observant.

Simply put, “If every US citizen here in this country, placed our safety as a country as their first priority, the terrorists would have a difficult time planning, financing and executing an attack on our soil. We then, in good conscience, would hand over a safer and more secure world to our children and grandchildren.”

Randy is a veteran of the United States Army where he served in the Infantry as a specialist in the T.O.W. missile systems as well as other anti-armor missile systems. Today, Randy is a businessman, owning several companies and devotes every spare moment and resource to fighting terrorism.
