Cocaine Wars ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It takes 500 grams of powder cocaine to receive the same sentence that is meted out for possession of only five grams of crack cocaine. Yet five grams of crack is a user's dose, while 500 grams of cocaine is a dealer's supply. Why a 100-to-1 disparity? In this program, ABC News anchor Ted Koppel and correspondent Don Dahler explore how the panic inspired by crack cocaine in the 1980s has left a legacy of crowded jails with overwhelmingly African-American populations. Twenty years after crack was declared a menace to society, should lawmakers and courts reassess the penalties for this drug?
Drug control difficulties in measuring costs and results of transit zone interdiction efforts : report to the Honorable Jeff Sessions, U.S. Senate by United States( Book )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Defense Department (DOD), the Coast Guard, and the Customs Service all interdict illegal drugs--primarily cocaine--from South America. DOD is the lead agency, but all three agencies play a role in monitoring and detecting shipments of illegal drugs. The Coast Guard is the lead agency for apprehending ships that are smuggling drugs, with Customs providing help as needed. The Coast Guard and Customs share responsibility for apprehending aircraft involved in drug-smuggling. GAO could not identify the funds obligated and the number of flight hours and ship days used for drug interdiction in the drug transit zone because the three agencies do not routinely track this information. The results tracked by the three agencies to demonstrate their effectiveness of their drug interdiction efforts in the transit zone varied according to whether they focused on drug seizures or results of detection and monitoring and whether they were specific to the transit zone. Agencies can use several controls to ensure the accuracy of their own cocaine seizure data, such as assigning unique identification numbers to each seizure and headquarters review of data from field units. Although two interagency data systems have been developed to ensure the accuracy of governmentwide cocaine seizure data when multiple agencies participate in a seizure, the two systems do not prevent agencies from counting cocaine seizures in their own databases and annual counts when more than one agency participates in the seizure

Ballistic Missile Defense: A National Priority ( )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
March 23, 2008, marked the 25th anniversary of Ronald Reagan's Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), or "Star Wars," speech. President Reagan challenged the notion that the security of our nation had to rely entirely on so-called mutually assured destruction (MAD). The president argued that "the human spirit must be capable of rising above dealing with other nations and human beings by threatening their existence." While acknowledging the technological challenges inherent in missile defense, often compared to "hitting a bullet with a bullet," Reagan nevertheless "call[ed] upon the scientific community in our country, those who gave us nuclear weapons, to turn their great talents now to the cause of mankind and world peace, to give us the means of rendering these nuclear weapons impotent and obsolete." The speech galvanized the American people, and the White House was overwhelmed with phone calls from the general public, over 80 percent of which were supportive of SDI. The Soviets also took notice, publicly denouncing the speech in hysterical tones while, internally, wondering what it meant for the future of their crumbling Communist system. As Vice President Cheney recently said, "Reagan's vision of missile defense surely helped accelerate our victory in the Cold War. There was simply no way the Soviet Union was going to defeat an America so confident in its purposes and so determined to defend itself against nuclear terror. This outcome alone is enough to place Ronald Reagan among our greatest presidents." The anniversary of President Reagan's momentous speech has caused the author to reflect a great deal on the subject of missile defense -- what we have accomplished and what we have yet to do. In this article, the author discusses the nature of the threat America faces from ballistic missiles, the Ballistic Missile Defense System that we have built, the technologies for the future, and the political environment facing missile defense today

CONTRACT MANAGEMENT: Update on DoD's Purchase of Black Berets ( )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
On May 2, 2001, we testified on Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) efforts to purchase black berets for Army forces. These purchases responded to the Army's announcement, in October 2000, that Army personnel would begin wearing berets 8 months later. In an effort to respond to the Army's requirement in the limited% time provided, DLA contracted for production of nearly 5 million berets at a cost of about $30 million. In the process, DLA shortcut normal contracting procedures and waived restrictions, contained in the so-called "Berry Amendment," that limit Department of Defense (DOD) purchases of certain items, including clothing, to those produced in the United States or its possessions. Despite these efforts, DLA was unable to meet the Army's deadline, and it terminated three contracts because the contractors did not meet delivery requirements. In response to your request, we followed up on our earlier work in order to assess the current status of the black beret procurement as well as the status of DOD's efforts to ensure proper waivers of the Berry Amendment. To date, DOD has received about 2.1 million berets-less than 1 million of which were distributed to Army personnel. DOD still expects another 1.6 million berets to be delivered by September 2002. DOD has also taken steps to ensure that proposed waivers of the Berry Amendment are considered at an appropriate management level. DOD no longer allows the Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition, Technology and Logistics) or the service secretaries to delegate their authority to approve Berry Amendment waivers. Requests for waivers must also be supported by analyses of why alternatives that would not require a waiver were unacceptable. Since these requirements were set, the Under Secretary has approved six waivers, all of which originated at the Defense Logistics Agency. Because DOD is taking actions to ensure proper waivers of the Berry Amendment, we are not making recommendations
Defense Space Activities: National Security Space Strategy Needed to Guide Future DOD Space Efforts ( )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The United States depends on space assets to support national security activities as well as civil and commercial activities. The Department of Defense (DOD) depends on space assets to support a wide range of military missions to include intelligence collection; battlefield surveillance and management; global command, control, and communications; and navigation assistance. This operational dependence on space has placed new and increasing demands on current space systems and organizations to meet Joint Force Commanders needs. Moreover, concerns have increased regarding emerging threats that could affect the United States and other countries access to the free use of space. At your request, we are currently reviewing the acquisition and requirements processes of the DOD's Operationally Responsive Space (ORS) concept. In response to this request, we plan to issue a report regarding ORS acquisition issues by April 2008, and by July 2008 we will issue a report regarding how ORS is being developed to satisfy warfighter needs. However, we are providing you this letter because during the course of our work on how ORS is being developed to satisfy warfighter needs, we learned that the National Security Space Office developed a National Security Space Strategy in 2004, but it has not been issued. We are bringing this matter to your attention because without a strategy in place to link the defense and intelligence communities, future space programs, plans, and new space concepts, such as ORS, will be developed without the overarching strategic guidance that a national strategy could provide. Moreover, in April 2003, GAO recommended and DOD agreed that space activities needed to include a national security space strategy tied to overall department-level space goals, timelines, and performance measures to assess space activities progress in achieving national security space goals
