Abstract : Forging a New Shield represents the culmination of more than two years of work by more than three hundred dedicated U.S. national security executives, professionals, and scholars. It provides a comprehensive historical analysis of the current U.S. national security system, an evaluation of the system's performance since its inception in 1947, and a detailed analysis of its current capabilities. On the basis of these assessments, the report proposes a fully integrated program of reform and renewal. This executive summary highlights the compelling case for redesigning the U.S. national security system, distills the study's essential assessments and findings, and outlines the detailed, integrated set of recommendations put forth in the report.
