The demands for U.S. leadership are substantial--particularly in the dynamic Middle East and Asia-Pacific--yet fiscal challenges are forcing reductions in defense spending, sparking new thinking about American engagement with the world. In this important election season, many Americans will look to the next U.S. president to repair the economy, but he will nonetheless inherit complicated military and diplomatic engagements and govern as commander-in-chief of the globe's most powerful nation. As a result, the discussion of national security issues must take a central role in the 2012 presidential election.This event is the fourth in a series of campaign-season seminars on the critical issues of U.S. foreign and defense policy, sponsored by AEI, the Center for a New American Security and the New America Foundation.
