Author Biography - Kenneth Allard

KENNETH ALLARD, a former army colonel, is a well-known commentator on international security issues, strategy, and military matters, regularly appearing on NBC News, MSNBC, CNBC, and the Imus in the Morning radio show. As one of the star attractions of Leading Authorities, a major speakers bureau, he appears before a wide range of business audiences around the country. Colonel Allard served overseas as an operational intelligence officer and as a peacekeeper in Bosnia, and also played key roles in two of the most significant reform efforts in Pentagon history: helping to draft the landmark 1986 Goldwater-Nichols Act that changed the way the military operates, and directing the study that produced the sweeping "reinventing government" reforms of the 1994 Federal Acquisition Streamlining Act. He is an adjunct professor in the National Security Studies Program at Georgetown University. Dr. Allard holds a PhD from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy and an MPA from Harvard University. He was dean of students of the National War College from 1993 - 1994.
