After the first Gulf War, Jay Davis had both operational and technical roles as an UNSCOM inspector in Iraq. The inspections were physically and mentally challenging, containing all of the components of a bad thriller movie: gunfire, car and truck chases, field and lab forensics, intimidation and threats, and hostage situations. Since then, Davis has remained engaged with non-proliferation, counter terrorism, nuclear forensics and arms control, first as the Founding Director of the Defense Threat Reduction Agency and more recently as a member and leader of study committees for the National Academy of Sciences and the American Physical Society. He will review the inspections themselves, the lessons we – and others – learned from the War and its aftermath, and the relevance of this unique experience to the current problems of covert or rogue weapons programs.

Dr. Jay Davis is President of the Hertz Foundation and a National Security Fellow at the Center for Global Security Research at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
