  • Rashad Hussain is an American attorney who has served as US Special Envoy to the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), the second largest intergovernmental body after the UN, with 57 member states, and as US Special Envoy for Strategic Counterterrorism Communications. Hussain, a Muslim of Indian heritage, has also served in the White House Counsel's Office and on the National Security Council as a political appointee of the Obama Administration. He has also worked in the Department of Justice as a trial attorney and as a criminal prosecutor. In his role as OIC Envoy, Hussain has advised the Administration on policy issues related to the Muslim world. He has traveled to numerous countries and international conferences, and has met with foreign leaders and Muslims around the world. His position, "a kind of ambassador at large to Muslim countries, was created by President George W. Bush." Hussain's appointment as Special Envoy for Strategic Counterterrorism Communications was announced by President Obama at the White House Summit on Countering Violent Extremism. The Washington Post reported that Hussain was brought on to begin to build partnerships with international NGOs and other governments to counter terrorist propaganda. Hussain outlined an approach for "supporting NGOs who are countering ISIL’s narrative and helping other countries to establish their own counter-ISIL messaging centers" and highlighting ISIS's damage to local populations, "emphasizing accounts of [ISIS] defectors, and documenting its losses on the battlefield — without recirculating its gruesome images or matching its snide tone."
