Daniel A. Sjursen

Daniel A. Sjursen, dannysjursen@hotmail.com, is available to speak on U.S. foreign and military policy post-9/11, reframing patriotism and dissent, antiwar veteran experience, American Empire, race/class/social justice links to U.S. militarism.

He is a U.S. Army major (retired); senior fellow at the Center for International Policy (CIP), director of the Eisenhower Media Network (EMN), and contributing editor at Antiwar.com. He describes himself as “just another exasperating, insufferable, self-centered Leo with a minor Messiah complex, born on August 5, 1983 . . .” He was recently selected as the 2019 Lannan Foundation cultural freedom fellow. He is the author of a memoir and critical analysis of the Iraq War, Ghostriders of Baghdad: Soldiers, Civilians, and the Myth of the Surge.” (See https://skepticalvet.com/)
