 AMERICAN SECURITY PROJECT
INRODUCION
 It’s easy to become distracted by the sensationalism associated with the scalcli, Benghazi, cabinet nominations, and gun control. While ASP agreesthat all o these are important issues, it is still wise to reocus our energy onlong term solutions to perennial problems that eect our national security -like American competitiveness. August Cole, an adjunct ellow or ASP, haspenned an excellent piece on how America is slipping and where we need togo.Perhaps related to the sequestration issue is nuclear security. We continue tospend billions - yes billions - on weapons centered on an outdated nuclearstrategy. LtGen Dirk Jameson USAF (Ret), who REALLY knows the nuclearbusiness rom a hands on perspective, oers some innovative thoughts onhow we can save a bundle yet make ourselves more secure.  And by now we are all too amiliar with Benghazi and what occurred there.But ASP Fellow Matthew Wallin shows us that i we would just invest moreinto our diplomatic corps, we would reap tremendous benets.Tis is just a taste o what ASP has been up to this last quarter. We are truly non-parisan and have NO agenda other then making our nation more secure.But the issues we take on we will pursue with a passion, hoping to educateeveryone on what are critical topics that our government needs to support.Given the divisive arguments o this past quarter, we hope to breathe somehope that bi-partisan consensus can be reached to make us more secure.Visit our website to see all o what we do - I think you’ll like it!
