KENNEBUNK — Mary Margaret Graham, a veteran senior executive at the CIA and Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), will discuss the impact of modern terrorism on American intelligence strategy at the February 18 meeting of the Association of Former Intelligence Officers (AFIO) Maine Chapter

Her talk is expected to include a look at the historical and current posture of federal, international and domestic threat detection and counterterrorism efforts; the new role of state, local and tribal partners; and the challenges of collaboration versus competition in the intelligence community.

Graham served 27 years at the CIA, including as the Associate Deputy Director of Operations for Counterintelligence. From 2005 to 2008, she was appointed the first Deputy DNI for Collection, coordinating the collection efforts of all 15 U.S. intelligence agencies. Earlier in her career, she served as the Executive Assistant to the Deputy Director of the National Security Agency. Following her retirement, Graham was named a Visiting Fellow at the John F.
