Inside Defense, for which I have neither a user ID nor a password, has a little blurb out on their website. Here is the lede:
The Obama administration next month will unveil its first National Security Strategy (NSS), according to Pentagon officials. Draft versions of the 2010 Quadrennial Defense Review refer to a January 2010 rollout of the new NSS, a keystone strategic planning document, these officials say.The Pentagon is pushing for the NSS to include discussions on the following:
In September, the Joint Staff -- according to the [previously cited] briefing -- offered its view that the new strategy should consider six strategic challenges: transnational violent extremism; proliferation of weapons of mass destruction; rising power and regional instability; cyber and space vulnerability; competition for natural resources; and natural disasters and pandemics.This will be an interesting document to read. We should hope that it provides some insight as to where the Obama Administration is going with regard to climate change and international institutions and maybe even world peace.
