DEA to Host First-Ever Narco-Terrorism Symposium

Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Administrator Asa Hutchinson and the DEA Museum will host a first-ever national symposium on narco-terrorism. The event, “Target America: Traffickers, Terrorists, and Your Kids” will take place on Tuesday, December 4, 2001 at 10am. It will be held in DEA’s auditorium, 700 Army Navy Drive, Arlington, Virginia. A press availability with the moderator and panelists will be held immediately following the conclusion of the symposium at 12:30 PM in the DEA Auditorium.

CNN’s Robert Novak will moderate the panel. Panelists will include: Senior Policy Analyst at the Congressional Research Service Raphael Perl; Retired Colombian National Police Chief Jose Rosso Serrano; DEA Assistant Administrator for Intelligence Steve Casteel; Partnership for a Drug Free America President Stephen Pasierb; President of the Entertainment Industries Council Brian Dyak; and former Deputy Director of Counter Terrorism at the State Department Larry Johnson.

The symposium is designed to educate the American public about the link between terrorism and drugs. The DEA Museum and the DEA Museum Foundation are launching an effort to build a first-class museum exhibit and educational program to share with the American public the significant and complex relationships between terrorism and drug trafficking. This symposium is the first step in bringing together some of the best minds in the field for a provocative discussion on this important subject. The subsequent national museum exhibit will provide the public with a never-before-seen look into the world of narco-terrorism.
