Section 406 amends Section 708 of the Foreign Service Act of 1980 with a new Section 406(c) – “ The Secretary of State, with the assistance of other relevant officials, shall establish as part of the standard training provided for chiefs of mission, deputy chiefs of mission, and other officers of the Service who are or will be involved in the assessment of child soldier use or the drafting of the annual Human Rights Report instruction on matters related to child soldiers, and the substance of the Child Soldiers Prevention Act of 2008 .” This Act shall be effective 180 days after enactment. This would be about 23 June 2009. Conclusion The security cooperation article for FY2009 includes a summary of four pieces of legislation that impacted U.S. international programs. While the FY2009 S/FOAA was available on 11 March 2009, the individual country and program funding levels were not available until 7 May 2009 when the summary and highlights for FY2010 security assistance was entered unto the State Department Web page. A second article is being separately written for FY2009 programs. 34

Items of significance with the FY2009 DoD and continuing appropriations were additional ESF for Georgia and selected Caribbean countries and the continued prohibition for the sale of the F-22. The NDAA for FY2009 contained several important new or extended authorities. The “1033” counterdrug assistance authority is extended through FY2009 to include four additional countries bringing the total authority to 22 countries. The FY2008 “1206” authority to build the capacity of Pakistan Frontier Corps was extended through FY2009. The FY2007 “1202” authority for the loan of certain SME items using ACSAs was extended through FY2011. The FY2006 “1206” authority to build the capacity of foreign military forces to counter terrorism was extended through FY2011 with an increased annual value of $350,000,000. The FY2006 “1207” for DoD security and stabilization assistance to DoS was extended through FY2009. The FY2005 special operations “1205” support authority was extended through FY2013 and increased to $35,000,000 annually. The annual authority for CTFP was increased to $35,000,000. A relatively small but significant 2008 law authorized the transfer of four ships total to three different countries as grant EDA, established the requirement for assessing and reporting Israel’s qualitative military edge (QME) over military threats, amended Section 36 of the AECA requiring a determination that a notified sale or licensing proposal will not adversely affect Israel’s QME, and amended the AECA throughout adding the Republic of Korea to the selective “NATO countries plus three (now plus four)” congressional notification process. Any country identified using children as soldiers or in any human rights unacceptable support role is not to receive grant EDA, IMET, FMFP, or DCS. An annual report is to be provided to Congress regarding educational and disciplinary actions by U.S. federal agencies to enforce trafficking in persons by U.S. military members, and any efforts taken to ensure USG contractor and subcontractor compliance with TIP prohibitions.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
