Recently I had the opportunity to meet some "senior administration officials" regarding the contours of the recently released "National Security Strategy" by the President.
The Brookings Institution President calls the new US National Security Strategy introduced on Thursday "the most comprehensive National Security Strategy ever." The new strategy offers a more realistic path to stopping Iran, but it won't be easy.
Competition results in better contractor performance. When companies are forced to vie for Defense Department dollars, they are more likely to lower prices, produce better commodities, and act more responsively to military and government needs.
A historic opportunity to tame a voracious source of our horrific federal debt is being squandered by short sighted games played by this administration, some of them abysmally selfish.
By refusing to demonstrate leadership on the issues, Obama has played into the hands of his opponents. The losers are not just the Dems, but the prisoners at GITMO, who now seem more abandoned than at any time since GITMO's first years.
This week hundreds of gay and lesbians veterans flooded the halls of U.S. Capitol as part of Veterans Lobby Day on DADT. But our stories of valor and patriotism were not all received by willing ears.
Big military is big government. The President is the Commander-in-Chief of the military. You can't be against government and be pro-military. That's like being anti-rain but pro-precipitation.
The region today delineated as both Afghanistan and Pakistan has known many borders over the millennia, yet none have been more artificial or contenti...
The Pentagon Chaplains Office has clearly turned the Pentagon's event into an official National Day of Prayer Task Force event. No other interpretation is reasonable, rational, or possible.
It's frustrating, Mr. President. You have told us repeatedly to be impatient, to hold you accountable, to pressure you, and to not wait for our rights. Yet, when you were pressured last night to repeal DADT, you played dumb.
The Gates memo is right to focus attention on the real choices. It is ultimately Iran, far more than Afghanistan, Iraq, or even Pakistan, that is likely to prove the most significant strategic challenge for this president.
When the top brass of U.S. and Mexican security met in Mexico City March 24, they took historic steps to ratchet up U.S. involvement in Mexico's failed drug war.
With a projected cost of $388 Billion, the Pentagon's F-35 program is becoming today's poster for what in the 1980s Washington Post cartoonist Herblock depicted as a $600 toilet seat hanging around the neck of then Secretary of Defense Casper Weinberger.
If you listen to the god-fearing, unreconstructed defenders of American exceptionalism, then you already know that world ended when health care reform passed. But why do things seem the same?
Robert Gates and Michael Mullen correctly criticized Lt. General Benjamin Mixon for writing to Stars and Stripes expressing his opposition to repealing DADT. However, they have only themselves to blame for Mixon's insubordination.
Osama bin Laden is either dead or alive, and I'm proposing a strategy to both remove him from the world stage while hunting him down in the process. The tactic is simple: declare his demise.
