Abstract:

The American military is engaged in a variety of operations in support of the drug control strategy and programs of the U.S. Government. One of the more significant responsibilities assigned to the American military is the lead role for aerial and maritime detection and monitoring illegal drug traffic into the United States. As the resources required for this and other drug control-related military responsibilities are identified and justified in defense program planning, in budgets, and before Congress, a salient and persistent question is how the effectiveness of military operations in support of drug interdiction should be measured.
