On March 7, 2013, the Atlantic Council hosted the Project for a United and Strong America for the launch of their new report, A New National Security Strategy for the United States.


Over the past six months, a bipartisan task force of foreign policy and national security experts, including former officials who served in the administrations of Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton, has met to tackle this question. The result: a blueprint for a new national security strategy for the United States—one that sets priorities amid limited resources, while remaining true to the principles of advancing democratic values and exercising strong American global leadership.
