Drugs vs. Terrorism: What’s the bigger threat?
CLEVELAND: General Barry R. McCaffrey, who served as the nation’s drug czar from 1996 to 2001 under President Clinton, will speak about what he believes to be the need for the return of a strong federal drug policy and for the elevation of this critical issue in the public’s consciousness at noon on Wednesday, May 16, 2007, at The City Club of Cleveland.
Some advocates believe the war on terrorism has pushed attention and funding away from the war on drugs. As drug czar, McCaffrey coordinated the $19 billion federal drug control budget and developed the U.S. National Drug Control Strategy. Prior to this appointment, he served as the Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. Armed Forces Southern Command coordinating national security operations in Latin America. At retirement from active duty, he was the most highly decorated four-star general in the U.S. Army.
McCaffrey has co-chaired the Atlantic Council of the United States NATO Counterterrorism Working Group, visited Iraq to conduct a country-wide analysis of the security situation, and helped release the CSIS Binational Commission Reports on Migration and Border Security.
McCaffrey serves as board chairman of HNTB Federal Services and on the boards of DynCorp International, CRC Health Corporation, McNeil Technologies, The Wornick Company, Phoenix House Foundation and Atlantic Council of the United States. He is recipient of several awards, including Health and Human Services Lifetime Achievement Award for Extraordinary Achievement in the Field of Substance Abuse Prevention and Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America Lifetime Achievement Award.
