Leutrell M. Osborne, Sr., Former CIA Senior Counter Intelligence Officer, Appointed Vice-Chair of Ariana-Leilani Children's Foundation International

Known as a "Change Agent", Osborne brings 26 years of experience in international intelligence to save victim of child abuse.

WASHINGTON and GENEVA, Jan. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Dr. Ariel King, President and Chair of the Ariana-Leilani Children's Foundation International, an internationally recognized advocate for children's human rights, announced today that Mr. Leutrell M. Osborne, Sr., agreed to serve as the Vice-Chair of the Foundation's Board of Directors.  Mr. Osborne is an ideal choice because he brings a unique perspective of channeling his international intelligence experience into global peace and harmony. 

With the Foundation's mission dedicated to the advocacy, education, global adoption and adherence of children's' human rights, based on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), Dr King has been selecting a team of experts since 2009 to help facilitate the treatment of Ariana-Leilani, a 10 year old, who is being denied access to medication that would save her life.  Said Dr. King, "I knew Mr. Osborne was the right person for the Foundation after reading Mr. Osborne's memoir:  Black Man in the CIA (2012).  The United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) hired Mr. Osborne for 27 years and he served as a Case Officer, Communications Security Officer and more importantly, he was a Counter Intelligence officer who has experience identifying, analyzing and neutralizing adversaries in over 30 countries on 4 continents.  With his retirement from federal service in 1994, Mr. Osborne opened his services to domestic and international clients, like our Foundation, and his combination of experiences would add valuable insight into how to address the human rights of children, including Ariana-Leilani Margarita Alexandra King-Pfeiffer." 

Mr. Osborne's skill set is exactly what is required for the delicate situation of Ariana-Leilani, a 10-year old dual German/American citizen with a rare disorder, who is being denied access to life-saving medical treatments.  The Foundation's attorney, Mr. Roy Morris, added, "Mr. Osborne brings a fresh perspective into this fight for children's human rights, including those of Ariana-Leilani's.  His experience and understanding of the inner workings of the intelligence community and the "dirty tricks" that some of its members sometimes undertake will be essential for our success."

Mr. Osborne's company, The Osborne Group International, improves company cultures and efficiencies for its clients by utilizing teams of skilled risk managers who perform organizational transformations to mitigate difficult business challenges that can arise either from the normal flow of business or from unanticipated contingencies.  Stated Mr. Osborne, "We've experienced a lot of challenging situations, similar to Ariana-Leilani's, where everyone knows what they should do, but maneuvering within the system requires a lot of intelligence.  That's why I'm looking forward to working with Dr. King and the Foundation.  I can bring my expertise, experience, and network of relationships to provide an even higher standard of business, analysis, risk assessment and due diligence support."
