In 1992, Mudd was sent to the Counterterrorist Center of the CIA and after 3 years of working there, he was assigned to the position of the Deputy National Intelligence Officer. His area of coverage was the East and South of Asia and he did a pretty good job during his tenure. Philip Mudd’s next task came in 2001 and this time, it was at the White House. He oversaw the White house National security council as Director for Gulf Affairs. It wasn’t long after this assignment that the September 11 terrorist attack took place.
Following the attacks, he was deployed as a CIA agent with the mission to put another administration in place at Afghanistan. This was a short Term Task as he was back in less than a year, in 2002 to be precise.
The other positions the skilled security personnel occupied during his service years include serving as the Deputy to the head of the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), and Inaugural Deputy Director of a newly created arm of the FBI called the National Security Branch. He was a one-time Senior Intelligence Adviser as well.

He never mentioned a family, wife, child or girlfriend in his conversations except for a tweet he shared on February 16th, 2018 with regards Robert Muller. The analyst tweeted that he and his girlfriend were going to use Richard Painter as the password to their safe.
