Abstract:

Recently there has been substantial controversy over the United States militarys role in the drug war. Under legislation passed in 1981, the Department of Defense now assists civilian law enforcement agencies in their fight to combat illegal drug trafficking by lending military equipment and facilities, through intelligence sharing, and by providing expert training and advice to civilians. The use of military personnel is also contributing to the anti-drug effort and is probably the most sensitive area of consideration. Clearly, some policymakers see the drug problem as a threat to the economic, social, and national security of our country and look to the military for assistance and cooperation. However, others think that providing military assistance to civil authorities will interfere with the primary mission of the Department of Defense--military preparedness. To assist researchers in a better understanding of how the armed services are involved in the drug war, the US army War College Library presents NARCOTICS INTERDICTION AND THE MILITARY A SELECTED BIBLIOGRAPHY. It includes notable publications that were added to the Librarys collection since the first edition, entitled THE MILITARY IN THE WAR ON DRUGS. Keywords Reports Military publications.
