Pre and Post-9/11 Crises

From RAND:

The main difference between the immediate post-Cold War decade and the post-9/11 era as regards the variety of international challenges is that during that earlier period these challenges were faced and dealt with seriatim, rather than allowed to accumulate. Each of the above cited hurdles was taken, for the most part successfully, before the next was encountered. As a consequence, the George H.W. Bush and Clinton administrations usually had the luxury of managing only one serious crisis at a time.

Possible Gunman at Texas A&M

From Star-Telegram


COLLEGE STATION — A person armed with a gun has been sighted at Rudder Tower at Texas A&M University in College Station, according to an alert issued by the school.

University officials issued a “Code Maroon” alert at 4:10 p.m. that advised those on campus to seek shelter until further notice.

The Bryan-College Station Eagle reported that the person was described as a white male who was reportedly carrying an AK-47-style weapon.

Former President George H.W. Bush, Barbara Bush and Laura W. Bush were scheduled to attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the on-campus George Bush Presidential Library Center at 5 p.m.

University spokesman Lane Stephenson told The Associated Press that a campus bus driver was on his route around 4 p.m. Thursday when he reported seeing an individual carrying a weapon, possibly a rifle, near the student union.

The university’s Web site says students should remain indoors while police search the buildings.
