SUBJECT: RECOGNITION OF EXEMPLARY PERFORMANCE ON BLUE
LANTERN END-USE CHECKS: ELIZABETH CROSSON

REF: 07 STATE 43682

1. I would like to take this opportunity to recognize the
outstanding performance of economic officer Elizabeth Crosson
for her timely and thorough investigation of Blue Lantern
cases. As you know, the Blue Lantern program is the
Department's primary instrument for monitoring the end-use of
exported defense articles, technology, and services. This
program is indispensable to PM's Directorate of Defense Trade
Controls in making informed licensing decisions, discovering
illicit supply networks, and deterring diversions of U.S.
military articles and technology.

2. For at least the fourth year in a row, Embassy Singapore's
Blue Lantern team continued its proud tradition of
outstanding effort and results (reftel). Ms. Crosson
expertly and efficiently has completed ten Blue Lantern cases
since the beginning of FY2008. Despite this heavy case load,
she has demonstrated dedication, thoroughness,
professionalism, and timeliness, providing detailed responses
within 30 days.

3. The PM Bureau and the Department are grateful for the
efforts of Ms. Crosson, which have demonstrably contributed
to the integrity and security of U.S. defense trade.
