NEWPORT, R.I. -- National Security Affairs (NSA) Department faculty members recently traveled to El Paso, Texas, to meet with the leadership and staff of Joint Task Force North
The Department of Defense organization supports the nation's federal law enforcement agencies in the identification and interdiction of suspected transnational threats within and along the approaches to the continental United States.
Commanding General Brig. Gen. Mark Stammer, a U.S. Naval War College alumnus, and Col. Bart Bartholomaus as well as Col. Forrest Smith hosted Professors Jim Cook, Larry McCabe and Sean Sullivan.
The NSA faculty received extensive briefings on DoD’s support to the interagency in combatting the Mexican drug cartels’ efforts to smuggle illegal narcotics and other contraband into the United States. The visit represents a larger effort by NSA to better understand security issues in U.S. NORTHCOM’s area of responsibility and to strengthen the Theater Security Decision Making (TSDM) regional studies curriculum.
