ON-Lion Letter
In March, the National Strategy Information Center (NSIC) in Washington, D.C., released its latest publication, Adapting America's Security Paradigm and Security Agenda.  The report examines clear patterns shaping the global-security environment and what can be done to meet the new national-security challenges that arise as a result.

These challenges, NSIC believes, cannot be effectively managed if we remain diverted by 20th Century mindsets and capabilities.  The report identifies a creative, relatively inexpensive 21st Century security agenda that, if adopted, can make a difference.

In Adapting America's Security Paradigm and Security Agenda, among other things, NSIC recommends:  a reoriented and retrained military better able to deal with irregular challenges; more-effective intelligence collection, analysis, and exploitation derived from local knowledge in conflict zones; and military and civilian teams, comprised of well-trained professionals to assist indigenous leaders in bringing stability, development, and rule-of-law principles to local areas.

An NSIC video illustrating the new security environment and need to adapt our capabilities is also available online.

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee substantially supports NSIC.
