Program

With the Taliban briefly capturing the Afghan city of Kunduz, Russia flexing its muscles, ISIS undefeated, and China's advancing military modernization, the U.S. military is spread ever thinner. A new RAND report examines America's “security deficit” — the gap between U.S. strategy and resources. Please join us for a discussion with the authors, two former Defense Department strategists, who will explain why the United States must either boost its defenses, or curb its military ambitions.
