Wayne Simmons is an American citizen and meanwhile an indicted fraud. Like Steven Emerson, he was a frequent pundit on Fox News.
Simmons invented an impressive curriculum vitae which is fake. His claims to have been a CIA outside paramilitary special operations officer likewise are not based on facts, and his further claims to have been working for the CIA for 27 years is another lie. These claims and allegations were the basis of his claims of expertise which were accepted by Fox News and apparently the US government, too, since Simmons worked as a subcontractor for the government several times. None of his allegations and claims were ever revealed by examinations done for security clearance. Simmons' fraudulent claims were only revealed when he was arrest for fraud by the FBI in 2015.
Simmons particularly covered issues in the fields of islamophobia, Eurabia etc., and e.g. demanded the systematic racial profiling of persons of persons from countries of origin with a Muslim majority. He also called for having "American traitors" executed by firing squads. Having been active as an alleged expert for some 13 years, Simmons in many cases took up extremist right views, introducing them to a mainstream audience and serving to give such views and even conspiray theories credence.
