Abstract : This research seeks to answer the question: Do the DOD and DOS conduct continuous synchronized planning efforts, in order to coordinate security and development missions in West Africa, or is there a need for DOD and DOS to commit a full time plans and operations section to have oversight of West Africa security and development mission. There are three case studies used in this research to consider whether security and development missions being conducted in Liberia are having a positive effect in West Africa according to U. S. National Security Strategy.
