Secretary of Defense Robert Gates delivered aremarkable speech at Kansas State University onNovember 26, 2007. In his address, the Secretaryunderscored the pressing need to greatly expand thenation’s “soft power” capabilities. Secretary Gatesdid not speak at length about current Department ofDefense programs or the need to increase the defense
budget dramatically. Rather, he called for signicant
increases in the capacity of other government agenciesto work with the military in the rebuilding of societiesin Iraq and Afghanistan and be prepared to counterthe appeal of international terrorism globally.Clearly the attack on the World Trade Center and
subsequent conicts in both Iraq and Afghanistan
changed forever how Americans think about “nationalsecurity.” These events expanded not only the numberand scope of issues, but also the overall complexityof the process. Consequently, the requirement forinteragency decisionmaking accelerated, demands for
greater policy exibility increased, and an interagencyprocess that was largely conned to a few departments
of the Federal Government now involves a multitudeof new players and allied states.Emerging analysis of the American interagencyand intergovernmental processes has underscored thenation’s inability to respond effectively and coherentlyto contemporary national security demands. The 9/11Commission and other studies have all recommended
modications to various organizations and the overall
interagency process. These are clearly required,
but there has not been sufcient attention focused
on the nonmilitary human capital required to meet
