Policy Model Diagrams

In a few weeks, the students in my National Security class sections have a paper due analyzing the decision-making process behind the selection of some American policy approach.  For this assignment, they are to select two policy models and analyze which better represents the thinking behind their issue of choice.

Although diagrams representing these models were shown in class, I have gotten quite a few requests to send them out in hard copy or over email.  I finally caved. 

Now that I have spent the last 15 minutes drawing them up, I figure, why waste the effort?  Maybe someone else will find these useful.  Check ’em out below.  Click the images for full-size reproductions.
