Comprehensive Strategic Reform: Panel Report for the President and Congress

pub_Comprehensive_Strategic_ReformDeveloped in the year prior to the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington, this panel report for the President and Congress calls for a new Strategic Advisory Board (similar to the new Homeland Security Advisory Council) to tap into the strengths of the most innovative minds in the private sector; a "contingency planning board" of the NSC to be led by a new deputy national security advisor; and a new Congressional Joint Strategic Committee (much like the new Select Committee on Homeland Security) to work with the Administration in developing anticipatory policies and building consensus for far-reaching national security reforms.

Zbigniew Brzezinski, Lee Hamilton, Carla Hills, Joseph Nye, Thomas Pickering, James Watkins, and James Woolsey are among the report’s 23 pre-eminent signatories who call for a new comprehensive strategic assessment to address our critical deficiencies and to develop the new strategic vision the President has called for.
