Subject: RE: Schultz Report - Terms of Loan Arrangement (FOUO)

Pat -- per an arrangement with Dan Levin that we had made with respect to draft Staff
Statement 5, on Diplomacy, we secure-faxed the drafts of Nos. 6 and 7 with the same
"Subject to Classification Review" notation on each page. I take responsibility for not
having thought through whether, in light of the more sensitive nature of this material and
its likely subsequent distribution by Dan, we should have included specific classification
markings. The Commission and its staff have religiously safeguarded all of the thousands
of documents that have been produced to us over the last year and there is no reason you
should have any concern about lending us copies of the Schultz documents.

Dan, Steve, Bonnie,

I regret to inform you that we are deferring a decision to allow loan arrangements for our
restricted-read-access documents, such as for the Schultz document, as below.

As you probably know by now, we have identified what appears to be sensitive and highly
classified information in Staff Statements #6 and #7. This situation causes us concern.
I am hopeful that through the DoJ we can agree on appropriate security arrangements to
ensure adequate protection of classified information. Once that is done, hopefully in
short order, we would be happy to reconsider any loan arrangements you desire. Pat

Bonnie,
Yes, the Schultz report will be included in the Friday delivery. The Schultz document is
being provided to you on a loan basis for up to 30 days. The same groundrules apply to
this document that apply to other restricted-read-access documents. That is, any notes
taken based on the document should not quote portions of the document verbatim; notes
should be properly classified; and no copies of the document, in whole or in part, should
be made. Please call me if you have any questions. Pat

FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY

Dan, Steve,
In mid-January, we faxed a few documents over to the Commission. To the best of my
knowledge, they were materials that the Commission staff needed for the interview of Mr.
Wolfowitz. These materials had just recently been identified. Because time was critical,
the documents did not pass through our normal review process. We have since discovered
that 9 of the approximately 20 pages faxed should have been intended for read-only access
in accordance with DoJ guidelines.

The Bates numbers for the read-access documents are: 65710-65712, 65715-65717 and 65722-
2
65724 (these 3 pages are duplicates of 65715-65717). We will need to arrange for return of
the 9 pages and any copies that the Commission staff may have made. I would like to have
Ms. Gainor, who heads our document processing facility, pick up the materials during her
next
delivery run to your SCIF this week, probably on Wednesday. Can you
please
inform your SCIF managers and appropriate Commission staff to have the the
materials ready.

I regret any inconvenience our oversight may cause you. Many thanks. Pat

UNDER SECRETARY OF DEFENSE
5000 DEFENSE PENTAGON
WASHINGTON, DC 2O3O1-5OOO
NOV 6 2003
INTELLIGENCE

MEMORANDUM FOR THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, NATIONAL


COMMISSION ON TERRORIST ATTACKS UPON
THE UNITED STATES

Dear Phil:

In response to the November 5, 2003 request of Vice Chairman Lee


Hamilton, the Secretary of Defense has asked me to forward to you the following
schedule to comply with the Commission's requests.

NQRAD/NEADS/Department of the Air Force Materials


The NORAD tapes of interest to the Commission contain 46 channels.
NORAD is currently transferring the information on those channels to compact
disks. Those CDs are scheduled to be delivered to the Commission as indicated
below. The schedule is determined by the real-time process by which each 6-hour,
40-minute channel can be recorded onto a CD.

CDs containing:
• 10 channels were delivered November 5, 2003
• 8 channels are scheduled for delivery by close of business November 10,
2003
• 4 channels are scheduled for delivery by close of business November 12,
2003
• 6 channels are scheduled for delivery by close of business November 14,
2003
• 18 channels are scheduled for delivery by close of business November
19, 2003

The Department of the Air Force has assured me that materials responsive to
your request will be delivered to the Commission not later than November 15,
2003. The materials will be delivered earlier if they become available.
Detainee-related Materials

In your October 31, 2003, memo, you laid down a preferred order of
delivery for detainee-related materials. In fact, the accelerated production of
responsive materials will be facilitated by providing materials to you when their
processing—reviews, redactions, excerpts, etc.—has been completed.

• DODIIRs: The first batch of deliveries to the Commission is


scheduled for close of business November 15, 2003. Deliveries are
scheduled to be completed by close of business November 26, 2003.

• MFRs: The first batch of material extracted from the MFRs that is
responsive to your requests is scheduled for close of business
November 19, 2003. Deliveries are scheduled to be completed by
close of business November 30, 2003, with interim batches of
materials delivered earlier if they become available following the
DOD review process. The MFRs are longer in length and more
complex than the IIRs.

• ASPs: In light of the priority the Commission has given to the


URs/MFRs, as the processing of them begins to wind down, resources
will be shifted to processing the Analyst Support Packages and other
materials responsive to your request used to support "reason to
believe" determinations. I believe the processing of these materials
will be expedited by employing staff familiar with the subject matter.
We will provide information derived from these sources that is
responsive to your request, relative to the individuals you have
specified, as it becomes available. I will provide you a production
schedule for that effort by close of business November 14, 2003.

Policy Materials

Policy materials produced in keeping with DOD's procedures—including


reviews and redactions—will be delivered in a sequence beginning with responsive
historical, collateral-classification materials (January 1, 1998 through December
31, 2001), followed by responsive current collateral-classification materials
(January 1, 2002 through November 5, 2003), finishing with responsive materials
that are sensitive compartmented information or part of special-access programs
controlled by DOD (January 1, 1998 through November 5, 2003). Delivery is
scheduled as follows:
NOU-06-2003 17:34 P.04/04

• Historical collateral-classification materials: close of business November


15, 2003
• Current collateral-classification materials: close of business November
22, 2003
• SCI and SAP materials: close of business November 26, 2003.

The delivery of policy materials entails DOJ review before being delivered.
The delivery schedule for those materials, therefore, could be affected by DOJ's
review. We have made arrangements, however, with DOJ to expedite its review of
these materials, and DOJ does not anticipate delay.

I will discuss with you any special handling requirements—for classification


or other reasons—as they emerge. If the schedules above are or can be accelerated
I will inform you. If complications create reason to believe a scheduled delivery
might slip, I will inform you as soon as it comes to my attention.

Throughout DOD, additional staff have been applied to responding to your


requests.

As the Secretary of Defense made clear in his discussion with the Vice
Chairman and Senator Gorton on November 5, 2003, he has instructed all DOD
components to be responsive to the Commission's requests and to proceed as
rapidly as possible to assist the Commission in meeting its deadline.

US defends role for evangelical Christian


Suzanne Goldenberg in Washington
Friday October 17, 2003
The Guardian

The Pentagon stepped up to defend the high-level appointment of an evangelical Christian general who has
described America's "war on terror" as a struggle between Judeo-Christian values and Satan.

Lieutenant General William Boykin, a veteran of the elite Delta Force, is to head the hunt for high-profile targets
such as Osama Bin Laden and Mullah Omar as the deputy under secretary of defence for intelligence.

But the appointment became a source of embarrassment to the Bush administration yesterday after details
emerged of the general's sermons to evangelical Christian groups depicting the "war on terror" as a religious
crusade. "We in the army of God, in the house of God, kingdom of God have been raised for such a time as this,"
Gen Boykin told an audience last year, according to an investigation in the Los Angeles Times.

The impression of a Christian holy warrior is reinforced in other speeches quoted by the Los Angeles Times, in
which Gen Boykin likens Islamist radicals to the Ku Klux Klan who do not represent the true faith.

The general delivered some of his sermons in military uniform. At one event he described a standoff with a Somali
warlord in these terms: "I knew my God was bigger than his. I knew that my God was a real God, and his was an
idol."

He also said the George W Bush's presidency was ordained by God. However, President Bush is unlikely to
appreciate the bulk of the general's comments, which defy the administration's claims that the campaign against
terrorism is not a war against Islam.

Yesterday the defence secretary, Donald Rumsfeld, said Gen Boykin was a fine soldier. Although he told
reporters he had not read Gen Boykin's remarks, Mr Rumsfeld said he could not prevent military officials from
making controversial statements.

Muslim groups in the US said yesterday Gen Boykin's comments go even further, reinforcing the notion in the
Arab world that the Bush administration's rhetoric on terror is mere camouflage for a larger project of subduing
Muslim and Arab nations.

Philip,

Mike and I had a couple of interesting briefings today on Anti-terrorism and


Force Protection, and the new ASD for Homeland Defense. At the end we sat down
with Pat and other DOD reps and realized we need you to weigh in on a few
things.
1. we were advised that Steve cambone will brief the AQSL to you only. Mike
would like to know if he could be included in that briefing as he was carrying
out some of these operations in Afghanistan and is therefore already aware of
some of these activities.
2. Regarding the ROE brief, they need to know in more detail what you require.
Do you want a briefing on ROES regarding operations in Afghanistan for pre 9-
11, or both pre 9-11 and after 9-11? They would also like to know more
specifics on what you would like to hear on ROES during the brief (while Mike
and I believe we know, we would feel more comfortable if you would provide more
specifics that we can pass on to Pat). I spoke with Karen about your schedule
and she said you are only free on Monday and late Tuesday afternoon. I passed
this information along to them.
3. CENTCOM will do the brief on contingency planning (and what was on the shelf
prior to 9-11). DCS is awaiting to hear from CENTCOM to see if they can do it
by VTC or have someone come here. They prefer to have someone come here to do
the brief. Also, they would prefer not to do this brief next week since they
would like more time to do a more comprehensive brief than they can prepare for
next week, is this suitable for you or do you want something briefed to you
next week before you leave for foreign travel?
Thanks,
Bonnie

Folks,

I hope you all had a relaxing holiday weekend.

I am in the process of planning a posse comitatus briefing for interested


Commission members and Jamie Gorelick (if she wants to attend). While I intend
to invite the DoD specialist, I am also interested in inviting someone who can
give a basic background on PC as an introduction to how DoD is today
functioning in the CT world and the limits of PC. I would like to know if any
of you know of an academic or another specialist who might be able to do the
basic backgrounder on PC.

Thanks,

BJ

Philip:

I agree with Bonnie's list (below) of additional briefs we should request from
DoD, following-on to what we learned in the 4-hr general brief yesterday.

I would also suggest adding:

A brief on AQSL (Steve Cambone commented this would be a sensitive one, having
to do with plans re AQ leadership);

A brief on ROEs;

A brief on what Steve Cambone called cpg's related to CT (campaign planning


guidance—this has to do with what commands needed to be planning for the
future, contingency planning, etc.)

Can you think of any others?

Please let Bonnie and I know, and Bonnie will work with Pat Downs to schedule.

Thanks,

Mike

Mike,

In looking at the list of available detailed briefs that can be provided by


OSD, I would be interested in the four. Two relate to our focus on DoD and
homeland defense, one relates to the new duties of SOFs in CT, and one on the
Strategic Plan we heard so much about yesterday. The four I recommend
are the following:

1. Creation of ASD (Homeland Defense)


2. NORTHCOM and UCP Changes
3. National Military Strategic Plan for CT
4. SOF Realignment and Resources.

Best,
Bonnie

buried under the blizzard of paper on my desk.

I read them closely this morning. What he said was very, very interesting. I
think many of his points we will hear again and again: that CT was just one of
many competing priorities; that it took 9/11 to move it to the head of the
list, etc.

We will definitely benefit from scheduling a formal interview of Adm Siglar.

Thanks to you and Dan for meeting with him. Great work!

Background Interview with Adm (ret) Sigler


Former CENTCOM/J5
July 10, 2003, 10:00am
Interviewers: Dan Byman and Bonnie Jenkins

Adm. Sigler served in the CENTCOM/J5 position until March 2000.

Overall question - was the military engaged regarding the issue of CT prior to 9-11? The
general assessment is that it was not.

Sigler: That is an interesting question. If the belief that the military was not engaged is
correct, then why was it not?

A terrorist attack against the US was a matter of when, not if. Many were saying this. So I
when the problem comes, one would be ready if one made the right investments in '^
preparation. It was hard to get this resourced because so many other priorities existed.
The question is, how much was enough at the time if a major attack had not yet occurred?
What could we have afforded not to do in preparation for an attack?

Many were talking about and looking at the issue. We were doing things at CENTCOM.
CTjwas one of many priorities and it did not jurnpjojhejiead_of the list until after 9-11._
If we blame anyone hereTithas to be the peoplewho did know. Some knew but were not
given a voice or were not talking loud enough. Were the CINCs pounding on the tables?

Clark knew the system and was working the system and yet he could not get the US to do
what it is doing now. This is indicative of anorganizationa] problem and maybe not a
problem because people were not doing their jobST^—•

There was a SOCENT liaison located at CENTCOM but working for the J3. SOCENT
was working the CT problem hard. But the problem is that the CIA, FBI and local law
enforcement was not showing SOCENT enough information. Yet, SOF was always in a
stovepipe doing their own thing and was very secretive. The SOF work in CT issue was
so highly classified that many did not know about it. Many were working hard on the CT I
but the issue had not reached a critical mass and they could not force the issue if there
wasjio jtttack. Now after 9-11 they have been joined with the combmeo^armed forces,
and we have a better idea of what SOF is doing. T~ ~~

The SOF was focused on al Qaeda and the UBL. UBL got briefed twice a week and there
was concern in CENTCOM about the threat. I believe there were several messages that
went from CENTCOM to OSD about CENTCOM's concerns about al Qaeda.

There were competing priorities for CENTCOM. The first major competing priority was
Iraq and^jadflam. There were many on-going military operations, for example, Desert (^- • ~ A
Fox. These were very time-consuming. The second competing priority was the Theater L gjfr. r6"^
Engagement Plan (TEP) now called the Theater Security Cooperation. This was also very a '
time-consuming. Also there is the normal day-to-day tasks in addition to other
contingencies that arise in the AOR.

There are two types of plan processes. The first is the deliberative,(J5) and the second is
the crisis action plans £J3). There are five different plans within J5.
1. Operations plans. There are two types:
a. those fully fleshed out
b. those not fully fleshed out
both are on the shelf and we can pull them, update them and execute them
when there is a crisis;
2. Concept plans. These are based on the following idea: "I have identified a
problem and I need to know how to deal with it." CT was a con plan.

Plans can be either top-down or bottom-up.


Top-down: Comes from OSD or JCS (via OSD)
Bottom-up: More interesting. "We have a problem and we must deal with it."
Iraq provides a great example:
Top-down: The Iraq plan for taking out Saddam was developed in 1999 based on a
statement by Albright that we can no longer live with Saddam.
Bottom-up: The J5 asked what if he goes away either because we take him out or due to
any other reason? What does that portend for Iraq? We told JCS we would develop this
plan. Once developed, it must be blessed by JCS and OSD.
So, J-5 developed both plans. The first one (take him out) went through more iterations
than did the "life after Saddam" plan. ^>

We did have a CT plan. We had 27 plans and CT was one of them. Again, the problem
wasjwjiere was thejMJQrjty? Where did CT fit into the overalllicherrieTQinny watch we
also had the embassy bombings. Should that have beerra~waKB=npJcall? It occurred
overseas and not many Americans died. We realized we were on an up-ramp regarding al
Qaeda but we were not at the level yet to devote national assets required andto reorganize
the bureaucracy the way we needed to in order to^ address the issue. -$t—-^ "

An attack was inevitable and we could not reorganize ourselves to prevent it. We needed /I
to do more. The problem is therefore three fold: „ ft /&/v£ > ? ^t/i?^1-*
1. the way we were organized , f^> ^<(j^J^ ' I '
2. too much on nyj pTate ^
3. there were no priorities ^

Were plans discouraged because some feared that by having them they would become
self-fulfilling?
Possibly.
Not all agencies of the US government are organized or culturally able to do the types of
planning DoD does. But the war on terrorism is an interagency problem (financial, legal,
diplomacy, nonproliferation, etc). The military is supposed to be the minor part if it is
done correctly. -
Did the military not trust Clinton?
If so, not on my level. I did not detect that on Zinni's level or in the JCS. It was not that
way at CENTCOM.

Is there adequate actionable intelligence to assist the military in developing their


operational plans in this war against terrorism?
Actionable intelligence is based on intent and not capabilities: what will the actor do with
the capability? The ability to act based on actionable intelligence changes over time. It is
dynamic. The line has switched since 9-11 where military action can take place based on
less actionable intelligence than before 9-11. But if the military acts without adequate
intelligence, it will get in trouble if the operation fails. If the 1C does not provide the best
intelligence, the 1C will be blamed for not being able to provide the warfighter with what
he/she needs to conduct operations. Actionable intelligence will never be perfect.

Any direct contact with Clark or the NSC while at CINCENT/J5?


No.

Who else should we speak with?


Talk to the guys who've worked in the J3 at CINCENT
1. LTGEN (ret) Tom Case, AR Was J3 and DCINC. His deputy who was doing the
actual day to day stuff (still on active duty) was Al Harms.
2. VADM Al Harms, now Commanding Admiral, Chief of Naval Education and
Training

J2 CINCENT
1. Bob Noonan, now the Director of Army Intelligence

At SOCENT at the time


1. General Toney

Adm Sigler is not aware of any change in plans or update of plans following the embassy
bombings. We should speak to J3 folks for that information.
There is a general distrust among military officers regarding plans. Some of it is cultural
and some of it is codified. The military is action oriented and generally does not prefer to
rely on plans.

Another suggestion: CENTCOM is an unusual combatant command. It is a very busy


command. It has been in existence for 20 years yet it has had 22 major contingencies. It
also has no forces assigned to it. It would be interesting to speak with other combatant
commands (e.g., EUCOM and PACOM) to see how they worked the CT issue in their
theater.

Weinberger Doctrine

Six tests the US should meet before committing military forces:

One: The United States should not commit forces to combat overseas unless the particular
engagement or occasion is deemed vital to our national interest or that of our allies;

Two: If we decide it is necessary to put combat troops into a given situation, we should
do so wholeheartedly and with the clear intention to winning;

Three: If we decide to commit forces to combat overseas, we should have clearly defined
political and military objectives;

Four: The relationship between our objectives and the forces we have committed - their
size, composition, and disposition - must be continually reassessed and adjusted if
necessary;

Five: Before the United States commits combat forces abroad, there must be some
reasonable assurance we will have the support of the American people and their elected
representatives in Congress; and

Six: The commitment of the US forces to combat should be at a last resort - only after
diplomatic, political, economic, and other efforts have been made to protect our vital
interests.
Beyond The Weinberger Doctrine wysiwyg://134/http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/library/report/1995/CST.hl

Union and the emergence of the United States as the world's

only remaining superpower is a fundamental fact. The result

however; is a very complex and different world.

The Soviet Union, which dominated almost every aspect


of America's security strategy is gone. In its place
new countries have been born all across Eurasia. All
of them are struggling—struggling to become
democracies, struggling to develop market economies and
struggling to develop multiethnic societies. 1

In this post Cold War era, the use of military means to

pursue our national interests are becoming more and more

complicated. We continue to ask ourselves the same

fundamental question presented by former Secretary of

Defense Caspar Weinberger: "under what circumstances, and by

what means, does a great democracy such as ours reach the

painful decision that the use of military force is necessary

to protect our interests or to carry out our national

policy?"2

On 28 November 1984, while addressing the Washington Press

Club, then—Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger proposed

the following six major tests to be applied when we are

weighing the use of U.S. combat forces abroad:

(1) The United States should not commit forces to


combat overseas unless the particular engagement or
occasion is deemed vital to our national interest or
that of our allies....

(2) If we decide it is necessary to put combat troops


into a given situation, we should do so wholeheartedly
and with the clear intention of winning....

(3) If we do decide to commit forces to combat


overseas, we should have clearly defined political and
military objectives....

(4) The relationship between our objectives and the


forces we have committed—their size, composition, and
disposition—must be continually reassessed and
adjusted if necessary....

(5) Before the United States commits combat forces


abroad, there must be some reasonable assurance we will
have the support of the American people and their
elected representatives in Congress....

(6) The commitment of US forces to combat should be a


last resort. 3

These six points now comprise the tenets of what has

become known as the Weinberger Doctrine. The doctrine

provided a legitimate framework for the commitment of

military forces during the latter stages of the Cold War.

Additionally, it still provides a legitimate framework for

those situations where our national interests are considered

vital to our national security.4

In this post Cold War era, our current national security

strategy of Engagement and Enlargement identifies several

national interests that are categorized as being less than

vital to our national security. It is precisely for this

reason that I propose we need to go beyond the Weinberger

Doctrine. We need to utilize a different set of criteria

when determining whether to use military force in these

situations!

The current state of world affairs and the use of military

force also requires us to address the War Powers Resolution.

Several arguments exist concerning the impracticality of the

resolution and that it is even unconstitutional. In this

post Cold War era, the resolution will continue to be

tested.

Our national security strategy of Engagement and

Enlargement recognizes that "our nation can only address

this era's dangers and opportunities if we remain actively

engaged in global affairs."5 The global interdependence

created during the Cold War, has critically linked our

national security to events and access overseas. We learned

after World War I that the United States can not afford to

abandon its allies and resort to isolationism. As stated by

Mr. Weinberger, "Stark isolationism quickly would lead to a

Interview with Dave Ochmanek and Thomas Longstreth


June 30, 2003

Interviewers: Dan Byman, Bonnie Jenkins and Alexis Albion


Location: RAND

Suggested Publications: The Joint Staff Officer's Guide 1997 AFSC Pub 1 and the
Doctrine for Planning Joint Operations 13 Apr 95 Joint Pub 5-0 (we have both of these)

There are two different types of military planning processes at the Pentagon:
1) the deliberative planning process, which follows a formal structure (as outlined in the
Joint Staff Officers' Guide) and results in operations plans and contingency plans.
Rumsfeld is changing some of the planning process now. Note: there is some
civil/military tension. It has come to a head with Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz; and
2) crisis response planning, which follows a less formal, reactive structure with no formal
rules. This varies by administration.

In general, planning goes from various civilian officials, to the JCS, to the CINCdoms.
The CINCS construct the military plans. The CINCS are responsible for developing
operations plans for their own regions based on the guidance received. Other military and
civilian officials review the plans. In reality, however, the procedure is constantly
interactive and constantly being revised. Most plans have a two-year cycle and are
reviewed by the SecDef every two years. Plans are very hard for most civilians to
understand, let alone to assess. It was very hard for the NSC in particular to get its hands
around military planning issues.

There are 3 different types of plans:


1) operations plans w/ TPFDDs1 (most detailed)
2) contingency plans w/ TPFDDs (less detailed)
3) contingency plans w/out TPFDDs (least detailed)

The "op" plans, of which there are less than half a dozen, are quite large, numbering
thousands of pages. There are more contingency plans, and even more of the minor
contingency plans.

CINCS - they always have opportunities to influence the policy process. It is not always
just top-down. The CINCS are responsible for the warfight so they want to influence
resource allocations. Joint monthly readiness reviews by the CINCS was established
because the CINCs wanted more say in resource allocations.

CINCENT is a busy CINC. It believed Afghanistan was a "backwater" country. It did


not put their best people on the "Stans" and there was also a lot of "deadweight" on the
"Stans." The focus of deliberative planning effort was on N. Korean and Iraq rather than
counterterrorism.

1 Time-phased force and deployment data (TPFDD): This is the Joint Operation Planning and Execution System
data, non-unit-related cargo and personal data, and movement data for the plan.
07/03/03 Bonnie D. Jenkins

SOCCENT was the key for deliberate planning regarding SOF in Afghanistan. A
problem with SOF is that they are very secretive and this secrecy makes it hard for them
to coordinate with others. SOFs are very compartmentalized so we don't know where
they are or what they are doing.

The 1993 bottom-up review did list terrorism as a major concern. The military was to focus
on terrorism and prepare for dealing with potential terrorist threats. This led to a DIA
assessment of the threat. But from 1993-1995, the focus was more on hostage rescue and
state-sponsored terrorism. In 1998, the threat assessment was broadened to include force
protection for foreign deployed troops, e.g. in Bosnia there was tremendous concern
regarding Mujahedin attacks.

On September 12, there was apian on the shelf for Afghanistan. While prior planning
was done, as noted earlier, not much attention was paid to Afghanistan. The plans on the
shelf were likely those used as the basis of planning for Enduring Freedom. So, there was
some work done because they were told to plan something.

There was criticism that the Clinton administration was spending resources doing silly
things (e.g., taking children to school, rather than focused on warfighting. There was also
a concern that the administration got involved in military action that contradicted the
Weinberger Doctrine. Perry got it right when he said to use force when interests are
commensurate with the costs and risks involved. The Perry approach was that every case
is to be assessed on its own merits (use the military and assets when the risks are weighed
against the threat to US interests). However, there was no 9-11 yet so our "image" was
not going to deal with a war and it was difficult in that case to energize the Pentagon (ie.
serious threat needed to justify action). Now you have 9-11. Costs and risks of inaction
are too high. This administration is much more forceful with the military.

Did the military trust Clinton to use force responsibly? Yes, they disliked Clinton until
they saw Rumsfeld ©.
Tom: Never had a bad experience. The military planners did not resent me because I was
a democrat. However, there was some evidence of military suspicion of the Clinton
administration, but it had little effect. A bigger issue was simply military resistance to
civilian officials doing planning.

The Clinton White House was only going to spend a certain amount of political capital on
the military. After the "gays in the military" issue, they were only willing to push the
military but so far. They wanted the military and defense not to be a problem (ie. did not
want crises and the military in general, to be an issue). They also did not want to spend
too much money.

The military does not always present extreme options such as Tomahawks versus full-
blown invasion. At USAF, they developed five to six air options before the conflict,
recognizing the importance of flexibility.
07/03/03 Bonnie D. Jenkins

At the upper levels, it is very much personality driven. When Clinton came in, it was
tense. There was a suspicion of Powell. The administration had not worked with the
military before. This was exacerbated by the Somalia and Bosnia situations. Over time,
the Perry-Shalikashvili relationship was great, but before that there was tension. Cohen
had a good relationship with the Chairman but a bad relationship with the Combatant
Commanders.

Intelligence
Intelligence reform in the 1990s emphasized intelligence support for the warfighter.
There were numerous institutional and interagency changes, and technological
investments, to encourage this. However, to get a major change in collection, you need
high-level civilian attention (need high-level SecDef attention).

Intelligence has many assets and involved agencies. A great deal of time and effort has
been spent improving intelligence to help the warfighter. It is much better now. Iraq is an
example of the success of this. Once the war started, there were huge improvements.
How can we prioritize what is needed from intelligence? One way to address this is to
have more interaction between the military and intelligence. There are now more
representatives from the agencies embedded in the military staff. We need to continue
having liaisons.

The 1C now has more innovative techniques. A lot is ad hoc (going around the system).
Overall however, the 1C is not quick enough to adapt to the new threat. The 1C must
think creatively of going after high value targets.

Other general notes


August 98 - very few people knew about the missile strike beforehand.

Did we have contingency plans with the UK for Afghanistan?


Tom: we have worked with the UK a great deal in the past. Note: while Tom stated we
have a long history working with the UK military, he did not specifically say we had
worked with them on contingency plans for Afghanistan.

Communication between the White House and Pentagon is pretty bad sometimes.
While the NSC advises the president, to second guess the CINCs is very unusual. As
noted, it is hard for civilians to assess large operations and plans.

CENTCOM is an army-dominated command, so it is not surprising their options were


land-heavy.

Lessons Learned
What are the lessons?
Dave: should have invested more in threat assessment. More HUMINT. How has intelligence
changed to ensure the right people have the right information?
There was a failure of the government to understand the threat prior to the attack. What
resources were devoted to learning more about this threat at the time? Was there resistance to
07/03/03 Bonnie D. Jenkins

understanding the threat? Where did this resistance come from and what lied behind this
resistance? This is really an inside the beltway issue.

Tom: should have had more interactions with guard, reserves, state and local 1st
responders. Should have focused on communications, training, equipment, and other
difficulties.

What did the military do well?


Tom: Engagement in the region. There was great payoff for the small investment of
engagement in Uzbekistan and the low level ties to other Central Asian states, which
allowed us to establish relationships. This paid off even though the Clinton
administration was criticized for these engagement efforts. The military to military
contacts were useful. There were exercises carried out by the military (CINCENT's
regional strategy) in Central Asia and Pakistan in the '90s. The intelligence community is
now much better focused to support the combatant commander. It was an important part
of the earlier regional strategy. This was immensely helpful when we were trying to get
troops into the region.

Future Interview Recommendation


Recommends talking to Ed O'Connell at RAND who did targeting at CENTCOM (regarding
DoD's ability to go after novel threats, going after high-value targets, targeting for OEF2,
etc).

My questions:
1. Was there or was there not something on the shelf?
2. Where did the communication gap occur? Principals, CINCs? Why was Afghanistan
a "backwater" issue when the President, Clark and Tenet kept saying terrorism was so
important and were asking for military options?
3. More information on JSOC's position on these issues.
4. Did the military just not want to engage?
- what are the real underlying reasons for this lack of desire to engage or to be
creative in developing plans despite the request to do so.
5. Are we wrong? Did the military really provide the best options? Was the intelligence
simply not adequate for the warfighter?
6. How can I get access to the "plan" that was on the shelf?
7. What about the USAF plans referred to (more information needed)?
