Jun 21, 2018 Intelligence and Policy Community Cooperation in the Libya WMD Disarmament Case (Occasional Paper 1802)
As the Trump Administration prepares to negotiate with North Korea, a question has arisen as to what model Washington should follow. National Security Advisor John Bolton has suggested that the Libyan nuclear case represents the best example to emulate. Given the violence Libya suffered after it disarmed, this recommendation provoked criticism, not only from the North Korean government, but a number of American analysts.    Anticipating the importance of this case, NPEC commissioned William Tobey, former Deputy Administrator for Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation at the National Nuclear Security Administration, to write a primary history. Mr. Tobey served on the National Security Council in the Bush (43) Administration when the Libyan nuclear case was being worked.    For his primary history, Tobey conducted extensive history. Shortly after it was completed, the CIA's Center for the Study of Intelligence presented him with the prestigious Studies in Intelligence Award for 2018.

May 24, 2018 Letter to Congress on Nuclear Cooperation with Saudi Arabia
On May 24, 2018, 14 nuclear security experts, including NPEC's Executive Director, sent a letter to the chairs and ranking members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. The letter called on Congress "to make sure that with any cooperative agreement with Saudi Arabia, our government does what is necessary to ensure that Saudi Arabia does not reprocess spent fuel or enrich uranium, whether it buys reactors or reactor components from U.S.-based firms or not." The letter was featured in a Washington Post piece, "Pompeo: Saudis must not enrich uranium if it seeks civilian nuclear cooperation."
