Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Weapons of Mass Destruction Coordinator Program
Glenn A. Fine (ed)
Chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear weapons, also known as weapons of mass destruction (WMD), have the potential to kill thousands of people in a single attack. Although concern over WMDs is not new, the disastrous consequences that may result from using these weapons has spurred the fed. government to prepare for and respond to WMD threats. The Fed. Bureau of Investigation (FBI) serves as the lead fed. agency for investigating WMD crimes. The FBI focuses its WMD-related activities towards preventing the illicit acquisition of WMDs and identifying and disrupting their attempted use. The preemptive focus of these efforts requires the FBI to use its investigative and analytical capabilities to identify potential WMD suspects, targets, and threats before an attack occurs. Several different FBI investigative divisions once conducted WMD-related activities. In July 2006, the FBI consolidated its WMD investigation and prevention efforts into a WMD Directorate within its Nat. Security Branch, comprised primarily of Special Agents, Intelligence Analysts, program managers, and policy specialists. This report (1) assesses how the FBI’s WMD Coordinators should plan and perform activities that address prioritized WMD threats and vulnerabilities, (2) evaluates the FBI’s integration of WMD Coordinator functions with field division intelligence capabilities and practices, and (3) reviews FBI efforts to ensure that WMD Coordinators and others that work on the WMD program have the skills and abilities necessary to detect and prevent WMD attacks.
