Kinshasa welcomes the Crisis Management Exercise
proposed for September 21 and 22. Primary POC for the
training is A/RSO Michael Jordan. He will be
coordinating at this end with S/GSO Barry Copenhaver.
The following provides other information requested in
reftel, paragraph 6. The other requested details will
be provided via e-mail on or before August 21.
1. The dates specified in reftel are acceptable to
post. If the trainers maintain the order of visits and
general schedule as outlined, they will probably arrive
in Kinshasa via Johannesburg mid-day on Sunday,
September 19. This will allow for set-up and in-brief
with the Ambassador and DCM on Monday, September 20,
overview training on the 21, and Crisis Management
Tabletop Exercise in the morning of September 22.
Onward travel to Brazzaville would be by Brazzaville
speedboat or commercial speedboat late in the afternoon
of September 22, or o/a 9 am September 23.
2. Kinshasa will examine the Alternate Command Center
readiness standard prior to the to the CME.
3. The tabletop exercise will preferably include
cleared Americans, critical LES employees, and at least
one Amcit warden. We would like to include additional
wardens in an overview session, particularly if we end
up scheduling two of these on September 21.
4. Post is served by DHL. (APO is also available for
mailing of materials.) MEECE
