ABSTRACT

Security Assistance: Observations on the International Military Education and Training Program, Briefing Report to Congressional Requesters   [open pdf - 2MB]

"As you requested, we reviewed the International Military Education and Training (IMET) Program in selected countries. Specifically, we determined whether the Departments of State and Defense had (1) complied with program policies and procedures and (2) met the U.S. foreign policy objective of exposing IMET trainees to U.S. values, including human rights. We also obtained U.S. and foreign officials' views on the program's benefits and the desirability and feasibility of expanding nation-building training in the program, for example, in the fields of medicine, engineering, and logistics. We obtained information on training programs in Austria, Guatemala, Haiti, Peru, South Korea, and Span; the U.S. Unified Commands; and the Departments of Defense and State. This report summarizes the information we provided to your offices in a briefing on May 23, 1990."
