On May 26, 2010, the latest National Security Strategy was issued by President Barack Obama.

[2] The new Strategy was referred to by United Nations ambassador Susan Rice as a "dramatic departure" from its predecessor.[3] The Strategy advocated increased engagement with Russia, China and India.[4] The Strategy also identified nuclear non-proliferation and climate change as priorities,[5] while noting that the United States's security depended on reviving its economy.[6] The drafters of the new Strategy made a conscious decision to remove terms such as "Islamic radicalism", instead speaking of terrorism generally.[7]
