The Obama Administration's Strategic Black Hole

In the Providence Journal, AHS speaker Mackubin Thomas Owens discusses President Obama’s 2015 National Security Strategy:

"President Obama’s 2015 National Security Strategy is almost a parody of the worst previous NSS documents. Its catch phrase is “strategic patience,” presumably an attempt to replace “leading from behind.” Much of the document is given over to self-congratulation, touting the administration’s purported achievements. The rest is filler that does not fulfill the document’s promise to provide 'a vision and strategy for advancing the nation’s interests, universal values, and a rules-based international order through strong and sustainable American leadership.'"
