Abstract : On September 18 and 19, 2001, the National Intelligence Council, the Defense Intelligence Agency, and the Center for Strategic Leadership (CSL) of the United States Army War College conducted a two-day workshop on African security issues focusing on the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The conference began at 1200 hours on September 18th and concluded at noon on September 19th at the Collins Center U.S. Army War College, Carlisle Barracks, Pennsylvania. An assemblage of government, academic, and private sector experts joined us to hear presentations on critical aspects of Central African security, and debated their conclusions and defended their positions in an informal exchange with United States intelligence community analysts. The workshop was a small, intimate, and focused activity based on the needs of the intelligence community. The emphasis of the workshop was to focus out of the box to address difficult questions related to the ongoing conflict in the strategically important Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).
