Abstract : The National Drug Control Strategy and supporting strategy of the Department of Defense guide the efforts the United States and the Services in counterdrug operations. This study examines the origins of the national strategy and how the supporting military strategy was developed to work within the framework produced by Presidents Bush and Clinton. It explores the degrees of success achieved over the eight years the two strategies have been in existence, proposes a focus on the economics of the drug source countries as the center of gravity in counterdrug strategies of the future, and offers considerations for how military strategy could more effectively complement national strategy.
