The MeK had provided security services to Saddam Hussein from its camps in Iraq and had been listed as a foreign terrorist organization by the Secretary of State.

What does an individual need to be considered an experienced fighter pilot? The current formal definition is based on how many flying hours a person has, but in practice, the question is more complex and sometimes subjective because an individual requires different kinds of experience for combat positions and staff positions. The authors surveyed training experts to discover practical bases for judgments about the experience needed for different jobs. For flying positions, they found that time in advanced simulators is now also considered to be an important component of experience. Upgrade lev

335 pages. Juan de Mariana (1536-1624), a major thinker of the Spanish renaissance, was a founder of economic science. This study of his writings and legacy appeared in 1928 and has not been reprinted until now. Prof. Fr. Laures explores his thinking on value, commerce, money, entrepreneurship, labor, taxes, and more, and demonstrates that he is a major if overlooked founder of economic science and classical liberalism. Trained in the tradition of Thomas Aquinas, Juan de Mariana made huge advances in not only economics but also in law and sociology. He was famously jailed for going too far i

In June 1998, U.S. Vice President Al Gore and the National Partnership for Reinventing Government presented a team of Army logisticians and RAND analysts the Hammer Award in recognition of a great accomplishment: making Army logistics work better and cost less. This report documents that achievement. Started in 1995, the Army’s Velocity Management (VM) initiative sought to improve the responsiveness, reliability, and efficiency of the Army’s then outdated logistics systems. Since then the Army has dramatically streamlined its supply process, cutting order and ship times for repair
