The incoming U.S. president inherits a raft of national security problems during a time of financial tumult and great uncertainty. Iraq, Afghanistan, the hunt for al Qaeda, border protection: the list is already endless yet still seems to grow by the day. And all the while, the national deficit grows. How should President Obama prioritize among the many competing demands for defense spending, homeland security investment, diplomacy, security assistance, and related measures? How much money will be needed? How much will be available? And how should it be allocated? These are the details that can define anation’s foreign policy.In his typically clear and concise manner, Michael O’Hanlon lays out the issues and their relative costs, suggesting a path for the new White House and the nation it serves. This timely book is the worthy successor to previous Brookings volumes on defense spending, including most recently O’Hanlon’s Defense Strategy for the Post-Saddam Era (2005) and Defense Policy Choices for the Bush Administration (2001 and 2002). It continues ourproud tradition of nonpartisan empirical analysis of defense issues.
