dc.description.abstractLonnie Carlson's presentation is titled "Precenting Weapons of Mass Destruction Proliferation - Leveraging Special Operations Forces to Shape the Operational Environment". The potential use of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) by terrorist or adversarial state actors is the greatest threat to U.S. security and interests. Limited understanding of WMD proliferation networks by U.S. and partner security forces however results in a lack of timely indications, warning, and actionable intelligence needed to conduct time sensitive operations against fleeting WMD targets. This paper assesses options and proposes a framework to leverage Special Operations Forces (SOF) core activities to disrupt and defeat proliferation networks. Recommendations to build SOF WMD expertise, improve U.S. Government interagency collaboration, and gain necessary resources enables execution of effective and efficient Preparation of the Environment (PE) and Building Partner Capacity (BPC) activities needed to set the conditions for successful interdiction of proliferated WMD.en_US
