The Last Cowboy



Prior to retirement in 2006, DEA Supervisory Special Agent Timothy Sellers initiated an investigation that led to the arrest of fourteen Hizb-I Islam Gulbidden and Taliban terrorists, including the leader, who claimed responsibility for the homicide bombing and murder of five Afghanistan National Directorate of Security agents in early 2004.  He prevented a planned attack on U.S. and NATO forces by tackling an armed homicide bomber as he was boarding a bus loaded with innocent Afghans, blocks from US and NATO military headquarters, the Presidential Palace, and the American Embassy.

Tim worked 33 years in the state of Texas, serving as an El Paso police officer, and as a Special Agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives and the Drug Enforcement Administration.  During his Texas assignments, he worked extensively in undercover assignments to penetrate and dismantle large-scale Mexican trafficking organizations.

He appeared on Hannity and Colmes, Fox News Network in 2007 and the Dylan Ratigan’s Morning Meeting Show on MSNBC in 2010. He presently travels around the United States to speak to federal, state, and local law enforcement, military, universities and national service organizations.  In addition, he owns and manages a multi-million dollar real estate investment firm in Texas.
