The New Beginning vs. the National Security Strategy
December 28, 2010
In this Op-Ed published in the hard copy of Human Events and at Human Events online, Eric Patterson compares President Barack Obama's Cairo speech in June 2009 to the policy goals outlined in the National Security Strategy (NSS), which outlines key strategic priorities for the Obama administration. Patterson argues that while the NSS calls for protection of values worldwide, it says little about religion and religious freedom, in stark contrast to the Cairo speech. Ultimately, Patterson offers ways for the Obama administration to put the Cairo mission into action, by uniting it with national security goals.
