DEA Foreign Review Report
The Drug Enforcement Administration received the "Report on the Drug Enforcement Administration Foreign Operations Review," which contains findings and recommendations to assess our foreign operations, enhance our integrity efforts, and maximize the impact of our global work. DEA requested the comprehensive review in August 2021 to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses in our foreign operations. The independent review team was led by Jack Lawn, a former DEA Administrator from 1985 to 1990, and Boyd Johnson, a partner at WilmerHale, who previously served as an Assistant United States Attorney and the Deputy United States Attorney in the Southern District of New York, where he led the International Narcotics Trafficking Unit and Public Corruption Unit. This review is the first of its kind in DEA's 50-year history.
