Colonel Michael Angley, USAF (ret.) is a retired Special Agent of the Air Force
Office of Special Investigations (OSI). The OSI is the Air Force equivalent of the Naval Criminal Investigative
Service (NCIS), was modeled after the FBI, and has dual missions: felony-level criminal investigations and counterintelligence
During Colonel Michael Angley’s
25-year OSI career, he has literally “seen it all.” When he was a young Special Agent in northern
California he worked a number of undercover narcotics operations targeting Air Force jet mechanics that were using, selling,
and distributing a variety of narcotics. Following a firm grounding in criminal investigations, to include,
murder, arson, and child crime cases, Michael Angley began to specialize in counterintelligence operations. During
his career he held thirteen different assignments worldwide, with most of his overseas time in the Far East and Middle East.
In 1996 Michael Angley took command of all OSI units in the Middle East where he was responsible for operations in
23 countries. He established groundbreaking concepts for the conduct of counterterrorism programs
that led the way to current operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. When Michael Angley retired in 2007, he was the Commander
of OSI Region 8, Air Force Space Command, Peterson AFB, Colorado. He was responsible for all OSI criminal
investigations and counterintelligence operations at thirteen Air Force Space Command locations in the United States.
Colonel Michael Angley is the author of Child Finder.
