Let’s Grade the Biden Administration’s Interim Strategic Guidance
As noted in Monday’s column, the Biden administration issued an Interim National Security Strategic Guidance last week. Secretary of State Antony Blinken introduced it with his maiden foreign policy speech.
The simple fact that it was released at all is extraordinary. For the past 35 years, successive U.S. administrations have been required by law to regularly publish national security strategies (NSS). In this century, however, incoming administrations have usually taken a year and sometimes close to two before releasing them.
