A COMPREHENSIVE ROUNDTABLE ON THE NATIONAL SECURITY STRATEGY

A COMPREHENSIVE ROUNDTABLE ON THE NATIONAL SECURITY STRATEGY | #TpromoCom #nationalsecurity #president #terrorism #terrorist | So what to make of this new National Security Strategy? First, congratulations are due to National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster and his staff, especially Nadia Schadlow and Seth Center, for the intellectual energy and dispatch with which they developed and drafted this document and shepherded it through the interagency approval process. This is the first time since the National Security Strategy was mandated in 1986 by the Goldwater-Nichols Act that a new president has issued one in his first year in office. Given that many other strategy documents produced by the national security community — such as the National Defense Strategy, the National Military Strategy, the Quadrennial Defense Review, and so forth — take their cues from the National Security Strategy, the timing of its release also bodes well for the interagency process of strategy formulation.

Opinion: The author of this think piece calls President Trump’s national security strategy “unprecedented,” however, if you go back in history, there were other presidents who took a similar staunch position,  putting into place the  means necessary to protect this nation from it’s enemies, both foreign and domestic. I applaud this administration for its effort to seal our borders and to assure better security overall on the home front. –Al Colombo
