Robert S. Bevelacqua is a retired Green Beret and a former Fox News analyst. He was a member of the Pentagon military analyst program. Describing the program he told the New York Times, “It was them saying, ‘We need to stick our hands up your back and move your mouth for you.'" With Robert L. Maginnis, Bevelacqua founded the security firm WVC3 Group, Inc.. [1]

The Pentagon's military analyst program

In April 2008 documents obtained by New York Times reporter David Barstow revealed that Bevelacqua had been recruited as one of over 75 retired military officers involved in the Pentagon military analyst program. Participants appeared on television and radio news shows as military analysts, and/or penned newspaper op/ed columns. The program was launched in early 2002 by then-Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs Victoria Clarke. The idea was to recruit "key influentials" to help sell a wary public on "a possible Iraq invasion." [1]
