George Alfred Joulwan is a retired United States Army general who served for 36 years. He finished his military career as the Commander-in-Chief, United States European Command and Supreme Allied Commander (SACEUR) in 1997.[1]

Unusually for a Supreme Allied Commander Europe, General Joulwan is not known to have attended the Bilderberg group, but he still has significant deep state ties, including as special assistant to The White House Chief of Staff General Alexander Haig, involvement in the War on Drugs, and as board member of Emergent BioSolutions.

As the Supreme Allied Commander, he conducted over 20 operations in the Balkans, Africa, and the Middle East.[1] When the United States sent forces into Bosnia in the 1990s, General Joulwan played the leading role in planning the operation.[2]

As SACEUR, General Joulwan created a strategic policy for the United States military engagement in Africa, which was the first time in U.S. history that such a policy had been crafted.[1]

General Joulwan sits on the board of directors of Emergent BioSolutions, a biotechnology company, after a referral to the post by Allen Shofe, an executive at Emergent.[3]
