Harvey Wolf Kushner, Ph.D. -- Biography

Chairman of LIU Criminal Justice Department and Renowned Expert on Terrorism

Dr. Kushner completed has masters and received his Ph.D. degree in political science at New York University. He is Chairman of the Criminal Justice Department and a Professor of Criminal Justice at LIU Post, Brookville, New York. As an internationally recognized expert on terrorism, he has worked with the U.S. government on critical issues involving terrorism. As an intelligence analyst for the U.S. Probation Department of the Eastern District of New York, he advised on all matters related to terrorist activities. Elected officials, military personnel, and foreign governments have all benefitted from Kushner’s advisement. Additionally, Kushner advises private sector clients ranging from chemical and petrol manufacturers to multi-national financial institutions.

Kushner has experience with some of the most high-profile cases involving terrorism. He wrote the expert’s report for a successful multimillion-dollar civil litigation arising out of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing (Duffy v. Port Authority of N.Y. & N.J. and Pesce v. Port Authority of N.Y & N.J.). As an expert in United States v. Usama bin Laden et al. which involved the duel 1998 bombings of American embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, Kushner worked with the defense team of Khalfan Khamis Mohamed, an al-Qaeda operative, who mixed the bomb that killed 11 people in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. In Charpié v. Charpié, a landmark divorce proceeding where the plaintiff argued that her children should remain in New York City after the terror attacks of September 11, 2001, the defendant contested that New York City was not safe and that the children should reside with him in Switzerland. Kushner’s report helped to decide the case in favor of the plaintiff.

Before September 11, 2001, the honorable Frank R. Wolf (R-VA), officially acknowledged Kushner’s support for a National Commission on Terrorism when he wrote “we appreciate everything you did to make the commission a reality.” The National Commission on Terrorism was a Blue-ribbon panel aimed at highlighting the growing danger terrorist threats pose to the United States. Additionally, before the 9/11 attacks, Kushner counseled families impacted by the Pan Am 103 bombing, terrorist attacks in Egypt, suicide bombings in Israel, and civil litigations against foreign governments known to sponsor terrorism.

In the immediate aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks, Kushner testified on terrorism and safety before the City Council of New York. He was also invited by the 9/11 Commission to participate in a VIP-briefing before the release of its final report. Additionally, he has appeared as a terrorism expert before the Department of Homeland Security’s Homeland Security Advisory Council, United Nations in Austria, and the National Security Bureau in the Republic of Poland. He also evaluated equipment requests for countering terrorist events for the Department of Homeland Security and Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Important publications throughout the world from the New York Times to the German-language news magazine Focus to the Republic of Poland’s Gazeta Polska have described Kushner as the go-to-expert for plain talk about the subject of terrorism. He’s widely quoted in the print media and the worldwide wire services. His statement to The Associated Press on September 11, 2001, reverberated around the world: "When you think of the coordination this took, it's historic. When you think of the measures that will have to be put in place to ratchet up security in the United States, it's monumental. This opens up a new era in the history of terrorism." 

Kushner has authored numerous columns, editorials, and six book, five of which focus on the pervasive problems inherent in international and transnational terrorism. His autobiographical Holy War on the Home Front was the Conservative Book Club’s Selection of the Month and Lysander Spooner Award Finalist. His best-seller Encyclopedia of Terrorism has won numerous awards such as Library Journal Best Reference, Reference and Users Services Association’s Outstanding Reference Source, New York Public Library’s Best Reference to name a few.

Kushner has worked as a contributor and guest host for the FOX News Channel and MSNBC, as well as hosted a call-in talk show on the most-listened-to talk radio station in the country, 77WABC radio in New York.  For many years, the Dr. Harvey Kushner Show was fixture on WGBB, Long Island’s first radio station and one of the oldest in the country. From exposing terrorist on The O’Reilly Factor to explaining the meaning of high alert on the Oprah Winfrey Show to discussing airport security on Larry King Live, Kushner has appeared on all major cable and television networks. On the radio, he is a frequent guest of the “Heavy Hundred,” Talkers Magazine’s most important radio talk show hosts.
