Posted June 28, 2017

Former Georgia Tech Army War College Fellow, U.S. Army Colonel Lonnie Carlson and Nunn School Associate Professor Margaret E. Kosal jointly presented to the defense community on “Preventing Weapons of Mass Destruction Proliferation — Leveraging Special Operations Forces to Shape the Environment.” The two led a webcast Wednesday (June 28, 2017) through the Special Operations Interoperability Group.

Carlson and Kosal highlighted key elements of their JSOU Occasional Paper on the need to build greater weapons of mass destructions (WMD) expertise within Special Operations Forces (SOF), to collaborate with U.S. Government and partner nation organizations to conduct WMD counterproliferation-related building partnership capacity (BPC), and increase operational preparation of the environment (OPE) activities. Those activities can lead to the early warning needed to mitigate fleeting opportunities to eliminate catastrophic WMD risks.
