Down range : Navy SEALs in the War on Terrorism by Dick Couch( Book )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In America's battle against al-Qaeda and their allies, the goal of the Navy SEALs is to be the best guns in the fight--stealthy, effective, professional, and lethal. In this book Couch, himself a former Navy SEAL and CIA case officer, brings firsthand accounts from the warriors in combat during key missions. "Down range" is what SEALs in Afghanistan and Iraq call their area of operations, and it can refer to anything from tracking roving bands of al-Qaeda on a remote mountain trail in Afghanistan to taking down an armed compound in Tikrit to interdicting insurgents smuggling car-bomb explosives over the Iraqi-Syrian border. The SEALs, coordinating with other forces including foreign special operations units like the Polish GROM, have once more shown their genius for improvisation and capacity for courageous action.--From publisher description

In 1995, the Japanese cult Aum Shinrikyo unleashed terror on the Tokyo subway system with a highly publicized Sarin gas attack. However, less is known about the group's development of biological and chemical weapons and about their prior attacks using these weapons. Through personal interviews and correspondence with former members of Aum Shinrikyo's leadership, the report provides never-before documented information on the terrorist group and its operations. The observations from this study have wide-ranging applications for terrorist groups worldwide

Driving in the dark ten propositions about prediction and national security by Richard Danzig( )
3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Department of Defense relies on predictions about future threats and potential scenarios to forecast needs and select and acquire major weapons systems. Yet history has shown that an uncertain national security environment dictates the need for adaptability and flexibility when predictions are incorrect, and the U.S. military must be better prepared when predictions are wrong. This report examines the nature of prediction in national security and offers strategic recommendations for how the U.S. Department of Defense can improve its predictive capabilities while also preparing for predictive failure. The author recommends that the Department of Defense adopt new strategies to improve its predictive abilities while also preparing to be unprepared, and suggests narrowing the time between conceptualizing programs and bringing them to realization; building more for the short-term and designing operationally flexible equipment; and valuing diversity and competition. Policymakers will always drive in the dark, but by adopting these recommendations, they may better respond to unpredictable conditions and prepare the United States for unforeseen threats
After an attack : preparing citizens for bioterrorism by Richard Danzig( Book )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Responses to a catastrophic bioterror attack are likely to greatly amplify or substantially mitigate the attack's consequences. No less significant, if our post-attack responses fail, we are likely to encourage future attacks by demonstrating their efficacy in spreading terror. Citizen preparedness is a key variable in our response, but while the United States has made substantial investments in professional preparation, only rhetorical attention has been paid to preparing the broader public. Using aerosol anthrax and smallpox attacks as primary examples, this paper demonstrates that our present preparations are likely to fail when measured against the six most fundamental citizen expectations. It advocates five research and development investments that would enhance citizen preparation."--CNAS web site
How to improve installation support services by Douglas K Ault( Book )
2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Each year, DoD contracts for more than $11 billion in services. many of these services are installation support services ranging from groundskeeping to complex aircraft maintenance. These services directly affect the lives and performance of the people who live and work at military installations. Making sure they are high quality is an important and difficult contracting responsibility. We believe the Military Departments can improve contracted services by taking into account past performance and providing incentives for quality. To help achieve this goal, we recommended that the Military Departments make greater use of negotiation (ie., competitive proposals) rather than relying on traditional sealed-bid contracts, which must be awarded solely on the basis of price and price-related factors. Despite common perceptions, negotiated contracting need not be complex for either the Government or the prospective contractors. We recommend that in their solicitation and evaluation of offers, the Military Departments develop simplified procedures that include appropriate assessment of past and proposed quality assurance measures. As an incentive for quality, we propose that the Military Departments expand of award fees. Modest monetary awards can have an immediate and positive impact on contractor performance. Awards would be based upon the quality of service rendered, as judged by the contracting officer's technical representative, subject to review by an award determination board whose decisions (would not be subject to appeal.
