Gordon Cucullu

Gordon Cucullu

Former Green Beret lieutenant colonel Gordon Cucullu has more than four decades of experience dealing with the tumultuous area of East Asia, including North and South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, China and Southeast Asian nations. He has written a best-selling book, Separated at Birth: How North Korea became the Evil Twin. He is recognized as one of the leading authorities on the complex issues that pose a danger to us all from North Korea and the international War on Terror. He was a contributor to Frank Gaffney’s smash best seller, War Footing: Ten Steps America must take to Prevail in the War for the Free World, and has gone to contract with Doubleday Publishers on a new book in collaboration with General Paul Vallely on Guantanamo Bay’s detention facilities.

Gordon has made more than 100 appearances on Fox News Channel discussing the Global War on Terror and the ramifications for America and our allies. During Operation Iraqi Freedom, Gordon was the primary on-camera commentator for WABC Television, Channel 7 in New York City and logged more than 200 spots. He is a regular with national and local talk radio show hosts including well-known WABC host John Bachelor. He has appeared with Laura Ingraham, Melanie Morgan and Lee Edwards, Monica Crowley, Steve Malzberg, Frank Pastore, Dennis Prager, Dave Marshall, Paul Schiffer, Crane Durham, Jamie Allman and Smash, and many others around the country. Gordon has been a commentator on BBC radio international. He is a favorite guest of Linda Chavez on her talk show on Liberty Broadcasting. He was a regular commentator for Laurie Morrow in Vermont, often substituting as host in her absence.

He is a regular columnist for Front Page Magazine, The American Enterprise Magazine, Tech Central Station, The One Republic, The Legionnaire, VFW, and several electronic and print periodicals. Gordon’s work has appeared in the New York Post, Washington Times, Jerusalem Post, Hawaii Free Press, and in numerous newspapers around the country.

Gordon has addressed many audiences, large and small, on issues related to Asia. His expertise ranges from contemporary problems to complex geopolitical issues, from Americans doing business in Asia to America’s new role on a world-wide stage. He combines an excellent knowledge of the history, culture, politics, military, business protocols and social values of the region with a great sense of humor. Gordon refines the complexities of a distant culture into understandable points welcome to an educated general audience.

Gordon has led Special Forces soldiers in the jungles of Southeast Asia with the then highly classified Studies and Observation Group, and has briefed the Secretary of Defense in the E-Ring of the Pentagon. He managed military assistance to war-torn Central American republics in a tumultuous period when several countries were falling to communist insurgencies. Because of the quality of his work he was selected for the highly competitive George Marshall Exchange Program and served in the Department of State as political military advisor for the assistant secretary of East Asia Pacific Affairs, at the time Paul Wolfowitz. After leaving the Army he has been a vice president for General Electric Aerospace based in Seoul. Later, as the executive director of the Korea Society, a non-profit organization in Manhattan, he rescued that organization from oblivion. Since then he edited a small newspaper, run an alpaca and llama farm, and ultimately turned to writing and speaking where he is now enjoying himself and making many new friends. He now divides his time between New York City and beautiful St. Augustine, Florida most of the year.

As a result of his varied experience (or inability to hold a job, choose one), Gordon brings a rare depth and breath of knowledge to his audiences. Gordon has been a featured panelist and speaker at the David Horowitz Freedom Center’s Restoration Weekend. He is a regular speaker at the Intelligence Summit and has been invited as a keynote speaker to the 2007 event.

Gordon has spoken successfully before groups in New York, Connecticut, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Houston, Memphis, Columbus, Burlington, and Boston including civic associations, universities, active and National Guard military institutions, veterans groups, chambers of commerce, and local organizations. He has lectured at the Army War College, the Army Command & Staff College, the Navy War College and before CEO clusters at some of the top Fortune 50 companies including Union Carbide, United Technologies, Met Life, ConocoPhillips, ExxonMobile and many others.

He was distinguished graduate of his Special Forces Officers Course, honor graduate from the Infantry Officers Advanced Course, and distinguished foreign graduate from the Republic of Korea Army College. Among his many military awards are the Defense Superior Service Award, the Defense Meritorious Service Award (2), the Bronze Star, the Joint Services Commendation Award, the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry, the Presidential Unit Citation, the Combat Infantryman’s Badge, Senior Parachute Badge, Korean Parachute Badge, Vietnamese Parachute Badge, and the Special Forces tab.

Gordon has a Master’s degree in Management from the University of Southern California and is a graduate of several US and foreign military institutions of higher learning.
