risks are uncertain and could reasonably be expected to require
deadly force that is more likely to be initiated by personnel
performing such security operations than to occur in self-
defense;
(2) it should be in the sole discretion of the commander of
the relevant combatant command to determine whether or not the
performance by a private security contractor under a contract
awarded by any Federal agency of a particular activity, a series
of activities, or activities in a particular location, within a
designated area of combat operations is appropriate and such a
determination should not be delegated to any person who is not
in the military chain of command;
(3) the Secretaries of the military departments and the
Chiefs of Staff of the Armed Forces should ensure that the
United States Armed Forces have appropriate numbers of trained
personnel to perform the functions described in paragraph (1)

pursuant to section 862(a) of the National Defense Authorization
Act for Fiscal Year 2008 (Public Law 110-181; 122 Stat. 254; 10

SEC. 1035. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON NUCLEAR WEAPONS MANAGEMENT.

(a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
(1) The unauthorized transfer of nuclear weapons from Minot
Air Force Base, North Dakota, to Barksdale Air Force Base,
Louisiana, in August 2007 was an extraordinary breach of the
command and control and security of nuclear weapons.
(2) The reviews conducted following that unauthorized
transfer found that the ability of the Department of Defense to
provide oversight of nuclear weapons matters had degenerated and
that senior level attention to nuclear weapons management is
minimal at best.
(3) The lack of attention to nuclear weapons and related
equipment by the Department of Defense was demonstrated again
when it was discovered in March 2008 that classified equipment
from Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missiles was
inadvertently shipped to Taiwan in 2006.
(4) The Department of Defense has insufficient capability
and staffing in the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for
Policy to provide the necessary oversight of the nuclear weapons
functions of the Department.
(5) The key senior position responsible for nuclear weapons
matters in the Department of Defense, the Assistant to the
Secretary of Defense for Nuclear and Chemical and Biological
Defense Programs, a position filled by appointment by and with
the advice and consent of the Senate, was vacant for more than
18 months before being filled in July 2008.
(6) The inability to provide consistent senior level
emphasis on nuclear weapons policy has contributed to an erosion
in the level of attention paid to nuclear weapons matters across
the Department of Defense.

(b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
(1) the United States should maintain clear and unambiguous
command and control of its nuclear weapons;
(2) the safety and security of nuclear weapons and related
equipment should be a high priority as long as the United States
maintains a stockpile of nuclear weapons;
(3) these objectives will be more successfully attained if
greater attention is paid to nuclear weapons matters within the
Office of the Secretary of Defense, the Office of the Under
Secretary of Defense for Policy, and the Office of the Under
Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics;
(4) the Secretary of Defense should consider establishing
and filling a senior position, at the level of Assistant
Secretary of Defense or Deputy Under Secretary of Defense,
within the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy
to hold

[[Page 4596]]
122 STAT. 4596

primary responsibility for the strategic and nuclear weapons
policy of the Department of Defense; and
(5) the Secretary of Defense should clarify the lines of
responsibility and accountability for nuclear weapons matters
within the Office of the Secretary of Defense to place greater
emphasis on strategic and nuclear weapons policy and management.
SEC. 1036. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON JOINT DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE-
FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION
EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE ON CONFLICT AND
DISPUTE RESOLUTION.

(a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
(1) Unmanned aerial systems (UAS) of the Department of
Defense, like the Predator and the Global Hawk, have become a
critical component of military operations. Unmanned aerial
systems are indispensable in the conflict against terrorism and
the campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq.
(2) Unmanned aerial systems of the Department of Defense
must operate in the National Airspace System (NAS) for training,
operational support to the combatant commands, and support to
domestic authorities in emergencies and national disasters.
(3) The Department of Defense has been lax in developing
certifications of airworthiness for unmanned aerial systems,
qualifications for operators of unmanned aerial systems,
databases on safety matters relating to unmanned aerial systems,
and standards, technology, and procedures that are necessary for
routine access of unmanned aerial systems to the National
Airspace System.
(4) As recognized in a Memorandum of Agreement for Operation
of Unmanned Aircraft Systems in the National Airspace System
signed by the Deputy Secretary of Defense and the Administrator
of the Federal Aviation Administration in September 2007, it is
vital for the Department of Defense and the Federal Aviation
Administration to collaborate closely to achieve progress in
gaining access for unmanned aerial systems to the National
Airspace System to support military requirements.
(5) The Department of Defense and the Federal Aviation
Administration have jointly and separately taken significant
actions to improve the access of unmanned aerial systems of the
Department of Defense to the National Airspace System, but
overall, the pace of progress in access of such systems to the
National Airspace System has been insufficient and poses a
threat to national security.
(6) Techniques and procedures can be rapidly acquired or
developed to temporarily permit safe operations of unmanned
aerial systems in the National Airspace System until permanent
safe operations of such systems in the National Airspace System
can be achieved.
(7) Identifying, developing, approving, implementing, and
monitoring the adequacy of these techniques and procedures may
require the establishment of a joint Department of Defense-
Federal Aviation Administration executive committee reporting to
the highest levels of the Department of Defense and the Federal
Aviation Administration on matters relating

[[Page 4597]]
122 STAT. 4597

to the access of unmanned aerial systems of the Department of
Defense to the National Airspace System.
(8) Joint management attention at the highest levels of the
Department of Defense and the Federal Aviation Administration
may also be required on other important issues, such as type
ratings for aerial refueling aircraft.

(b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that the
Secretary of Defense should seek an agreement with the Administrator of
the Federal Aviation Administration to jointly establish within the
Department of Defense and the Federal Aviation Administration a joint
Department of Defense-Federal Aviation Administration executive
committee on conflict and dispute resolution which would--
(1) act as a focal point for the resolution of disputes on
matters of policy and procedures between the Department of
Defense and the Federal Aviation Administration with respect
to--
(A) airspace, aircraft certifications, and aircrew
training; and
(B) other issues brought before the joint executive
committee by the Department of Defense or the Department
of Transportation;
(2) identify solutions to the range of technical,
procedural, and policy concerns arising in the disputes
described in paragraph (1); and
(3) identify solutions to the range of technical,
procedural, and policy concerns arising in the integration of
Department of Defense unmanned aerial systems into the National
Airspace System in order to achieve the increasing, and
ultimately routine, access of such systems into the National
Airspace System.
SEC. 1037. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON SALE OF NEW OUTSIZE CARGO,
STRATEGIC AIRLIFT AIRCRAFT FOR CIVILIAN
USE.

(a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
(1) The 2006 Quadrennial Defense Review and the 2005
Mobility Capability Study determined that the United States
Transportation Command requires a force of 292 to 383 organic
strategic airlift aircraft, augmented by procurement of airlift
service from commercial air carriers participating in the Civil
Reserve Air Fleet, to meet the demands of the National Military
Strategy. Congress has authorized and appropriated funds for 316
strategic airlift aircraft.
(2) The commander of the United States Transportation
Command has testified to Congress that it is essential to
safeguard the capabilities and capacity of the Civil Reserve Air
Fleet to meet wartime surge demands in connection with major
combat operations and that procurement by the Air Force of
excess organic strategic airlift aircraft could be harmful to
the health of the Civil Reserve Air Fleet.
(3) The C-17 aircraft is used extensively by the Air
Mobility Command in the Global War on Terror. Production of the
C-17 aircraft is scheduled to cease in August, 2010.
(4) The Federal Aviation Administration has informed
Congress that no fewer than six commercial operators have
expressed interest in operating a commercial variant of the C-17
aircraft. Commercial sale of the new C-17 aircraft would require
that the Department of Defense determine that it is

[[Page 4598]]
122 STAT. 4598

in the national interest for the Federal Aviation Administration
to proceed with the issuance of a type certificate for C-17
aircraft in accordance with section 21.27 of title 14, Code of
Federal Regulations.
(5) New C-17 aircraft sold for commercial use could be made
available to the Civil Reserve Air Fleet, thus strengthening the
capabilities and capacity of the Civil Reserve Air Fleet.

(b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that the
Secretary of Defense, in consultation with the Secretary of
Transportation, should--
(1) review the benefits and feasibility of pursuing a new
production commercial cargo capability with new C-17 commercial
variant aircraft and determine whether such capability is in the
national interest; and
(2) if the Secretary of Defense determines that such a
capability is in the national interest, take appropriate actions
to coordinate with the Federal Aviation Administration to
achieve the type certification for a commercial variant of the
C-17 required by section 21.27 of title 14, Code of Federal
Regulations.

Congress finds the following:
(1) In June 2004, the Office of the Coordinator for
Reconstruction and Stabilization (referred to as the

the mandate to lead, coordinate, and institutionalize United
States Government civilian capacity to prevent or prepare for
post-conflict situations and help reconstruct and stabilize a
country or region that is at risk of, in, or is in transition
from, conflict or civil strife.
(2) In December 2005, the Coordinator's mandate was
reaffirmed by the National Security Presidential Directive 44,
which instructed the Secretary of State, and at the Secretary's
direction, the Coordinator, to coordinate and lead integrated
United States Government efforts, involving all United States
departments and agencies with relevant capabilities, to prepare,
plan for, and conduct reconstruction and stabilization
operations.
(3) National Security Presidential Directive 44 assigns to
the Secretary, with the Coordinator's assistance, the lead role
to develop reconstruction and stabilization strategies, ensure
civilian interagency program and policy coordination, coordinate
interagency processes to identify countries at risk of
instability, provide decision-makers with detailed options for
an integrated United States Government response in connection
with reconstruction and stabilization operations, and carry out
a wide range of other actions, including the development of a
civilian surge capacity to meet reconstruction and stabilization
emergencies. The Secretary and the Coordinator are also charged
with coordinating with the Department of Defense on
reconstruction and stabilization responses, and integrating
planning and implementing procedures.
(4) The Department of Defense issued Directive 3000.05,
which establishes that stability operations are a core United
States military mission that the Department of Defense must be
prepared to conduct and support, provides guidance on stability
operations that will evolve over time, and assigns
responsibilities within the Department of Defense for planning,
training, and preparing to conduct and support stability
operations.
(5) The President's Fiscal Year 2009 Budget Request to
Congress includes $248.6 million for a Civilian Stabilization
Initiative that would vastly improve civilian partnership with
United States Armed Forces in post-conflict stabilization
situations, including by establishing a Active Response Corps of
250 persons, a Standby Response Corps of 2,000 persons, and a
Civilian Response Corps of 2,000 persons.
