On Sept. 17, 2009, the Obama Admin. canceled the Bush-proposed program. Instead, Defense Sec.

In March 2006 the Bush administration released its National Security Strategy (NSS), as required by Congress under the Goldwater-Nichols Dept. of Defense Reorganization Act of 1986. The authors of this essay analyzing the NSS maintain that this latest iteration of the national security strategy again disappoints -- it fails to offer a realistic plan with achievable goals to safeguard American interests, contradicts the actual policies & actions of the administration, & reveals an absence of introspection & lessons learned from the mistakes of the first term.
