ABSTRACT

Role of U.S. Special Operations Forces in Counter-Drug Activities   [open pdf - 1MB]

U.S. Special Operations Command invests a great deal of time, manpower and equipment to train Domestic Law Enforcement Agencies in conducting counterdrug operations and to assist foreign governments in their efforts to combat the production and distribution of illegal drugs. SOF also conducts detection, monitoring and interdiction along the U.S. southwestern land border and throughout the Caribbean basin. This paper examines the drug problem within the U.S., defines the national and military counterdrug strategy and assesses the value of this mission to SOF and their contribution to the national effort of countering illegal drugs in the U.S.
