By: Glenn Sircy
Fifteen officers from four partner nations participated in a collaborative national and multinational-level counterterrorism strategy development exercise Aug. 18-21 during the Naval Small Craft Instruction and Technical Training School’s (NAVSCIATTS) 13th iteration of its Strategic Level Small Craft Combating Terrorism Course (SLC).
The officers represented Bangladesh, Cameroon, Morocco and Sierra Leone. The objectives for the officers during the SLC exercise were to (1) gain a functional understanding of a proven strategy development model; (2) develop national and multi-national counterterrorism strategies using all elements of national power; (3) return to their countries with an improved working knowledge of counterterrorism strategy development, an increased appreciation of the importance of protecting and promoting human rights, and a clear understanding of the role of small-craft forces in achieving strategic level counterterrorism objectives; and (4) return to their countries with a draft counterterrorism strategy they may expand upon.
