The National Counterterrorism Center has issued a “Status Report on the Implementation of Executive Order 13698 Hostage Recovery Activities”, September 30, 2016. The White House executive order enhanced efforts across the federal government and directed a 12-month Status Report to ensure that the reforms were properly implemented.

The status report was prepared by the National Counterterrorism Center and was done in consultation with other government agencies such as the Department of State, Defense, Justice, and the FBI. If you have an interest in personnel recovery then the 12-page report is a good read.
