Homeland official arrested in online sex sting
The detective, a female officer working in the county's Child Exploitation Unit, had been posing as the minor in online exchanges with Rosen, police said.
Rosen, who is the director of counterterrorism programs and policy at the State Department, appeared in D. Superior Court Wednesday and waived extradition to Virginia.
A spokesman for the Fairfax County police said the department has a proactive child exploitation unit that makes as many as 100 arrests per year of people allegedly seeking sex with minors. His Linked In page states that he has occupied his present position at the State Department since August 2008. 2012 at a seminar hosted by The Potomac Institute for Policy Studies' International Center for Terrorism Studies, Rosen, while discussing terrorism, talked about the lure of young people into extremism. “It’s about reaching out to a pretty well-defined and pretty narrow audience, and that’s people that could be persuaded into crossing the boundaries between sympathy and action.” Fox News’ Ryan O’Malley and Doug Mc Kelway and The Associated Press contributed to this report. He currently serves as the chief Washington correspondent and hosts the online show "The Foxhole." His latest book is "A Torch Kept Lit: Great Lives of the Twentieth Century" (Crown Forum, October 4, 2016).Both are staffed around the clock by investigators.
