NSF members and participants,

We were treated to a most extraordinary presentation and analysis of global crisis spots by two of the nation’s top experts.  Rae Huffstutler, former Executive Director of the CIA, provided an intelligence analysis of these potential conflict areas, and Lieutenant General Marty Brandtner, former J3/Director of Operations for the Joint Chiefs of Staff, laid out potential and recommended courses of political and military actions.  The analyses were intended to be a briefing that would be provided for the next President of the United States just after the November election.

Rae and Marty have generously permitted us to forward their entire presentations and analyses.  Given the previous positions these two held and the high level of current interest in these topics, we are most pleased to link to their presentations below.  The Q&A period was, however, “off the record”.
