Abstract : After the Pollard and Walker spy cases in 1985 and 1986, attention throughout the government focused on security. Coincidentally, at about the same time, a dramatic increase in the numbers of foreign contacts was noted throughout the Marine Corps. A review of control procedures on these contacts revealed that no central Marine Corps approval authority existed. An overall tightening of these controls was directed, and the Assistant Commandant of the Marine Corps tasked the staff to develop a Marine Corps policy addressing foreign liaison. As a result, Marine Corps Order (MCO) 5510.16 was published on 30 April 1987 (Appendix 1). The policy has been in force for almost a year. Its effectiveness has been questioned by those charged with its enforcement. The purpose of this study is to determine the policy's success and to develop recommendations to enhance the Marine Corps' security program, specifically, as it applies to foreign liaison.
