This is a study of a United States deficiency in post-regime change planning elements through the lens of Graham T. Allisons theory outlined in his book Essence of Decision Explaining the Cuban Missile Crisis. The first two case studies, Kosovo and Libya, will illustrate the conflation that exists between the planning element and politically appointed decision makers. The third case study, on Nigeria, will provide an analysis of a peaceful transition of power to illustrate the need for a year-round planning element capable of presenting options for all three models of Allisons decision makers. Finally, the structure for a proposed Post-Regime Environment Planning Partnership PREPP utilizes the historical model of President Eisenhowers National Security Council NSC Planning Board.
