Dark Winter identified several key findings: DOD Capabilities 19 • Leaders are unfamiliar with the character of bioterrorist attacks, available policy options, and their consequences. These key decisions and their implications were dependent on public health strategies and the possible mechanisms to care for large numbers of sick people— issues not typically briefed or studied in the national security or defense community. • Following a bioterrorist attack, leaders’ key decisions would depend on data and expertise from the medical and public health sectors.

Finally, it should also be noted that synergistic effects have been demonstrated in animal models for combined radiation and biological pathogen exposure (23,24). As horrible as the consequences may be to consider, it will behoove the biological disaster planner to consider similar worst-case scenarios when designing exercises. 2.

The ques- DOD Capabilities 21 tions on who will provide food, water, and shelter for victims and other displaced personnel will have to be addressed. Force protection is an issue that has been rarely addressed in exercises. Various exercises have expressed significant needs in developing early-warning biodetectors, advanced diagnostic kits, an integrated public health surveillance system, interoperable robust communications, and advanced incident management tools. 11. CONCLUSION The DOD has the greatest capabilities in biological defense, but the responsibility for dealing with the domestic threat of biological weapons by a terrorist falls on multiple federal, state, and municipal agencies and the civilian healthcare community.
