Carl Nett is a native Kentuckian who left the Commonwealth shortly after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, when hired by the U.S. Secret Service. A graduate of the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia, New Mexico, and the U.S. Secret Service Academy in Beltsville, Maryland, Carl spent nearly six years with assignments to the Dignitary Protective Division and the Presidential Protective Division. In 2008, he resigned his commission when recruited onto a contract with the Central Intelligence Agency. Working within the CIA’s National Clandestine Service, Carl underwent extensive training at the facility known as “The Farm” and volunteered for hazardous duty assignment in Afghanistan. In Bagram, he worked with Special Operations Forces to develop actionable intelligence for capture/kill raids against al Qaeda, Taliban, and associated groups. In 2011, Carl was asked by the Pentagon to lead a specialized unit at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. There, he came face-to-face with Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the so-called “mastermind” of 9/11 and the terrorist personally responsible for the execution beheading of American journalist Daniel Pearl. Carl's 9/11-centric career makes him the only American to have protected a war-time President, pursued terrorist actors in their own backyard, and dealt with the aftermath at Joint Task Force Guantanamo. Carl received a conditional offer of appointment from the FBI as a Special Agent and is the author of The Stile of This Confederacy, an anthology of American history endorsed by former presidential candidate Bill Richardson and his hero, Hershel "Woody" Williams, the last surviving Congressional Medal of Honor recipient from the Battle of Iwo Jima.

Carl is busy drafting his forthcoming autobiography, Charlie November, the world’s first, and only, unauthorized first-person exposé of the Secret Service, the CIA, the FBI, the Department of Defense, and the ongoing Global War on Terror – from the White House, to the halls of Langley, to the corridors of the Pentagon, to the warzone of Afghanistan, to the Detention Facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. This unprecedented insider account includes details of Carl's status as the only American to have twice taken on and defeated the U.S. Government - to include the CIA - over civil rights abuses.

Carl is an affiliate member of the Association of Former Agents of the U.S. Secret Service, an associate member of the Fraternal Order of Police, an endowment member of the National Rifle Association of America, a member of the Association of Former Intelligence Officers, and a member of the American Society for Industrial Security.

Carl and his wife, Kate, a native of Rocky Hill, Connecticut, are raising their two young children in Kentucky.
