Report of the Quadrennial Defense Review Independent Panel, Hearing Before the Committee on Armed Services, United States Senate, One Hundred Eleventh Congress, Second Session, August 3, 2010 [open pdf - 6MB]
From the opening statement of John McCain: "As long as America has troops in combat, they and their mission must be our highest priority. Yet prevailing in the wars of today cannot be our only priority. We will also need to ensure that our force is prepared and resourced to meet a wide array of other challenges over the coming decades, especially amid the tectonic shifts now occurring in the global distribution of power. In particular, our military must be able to ensure secure access to the global commons, including cyberspace, to shape a balance of power in critical regions that favors our interests and values and those of our allies; to build the capacity of weak partners to secure their countries and operate together with us; and, of course, to defend the Homeland." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: William J. Perry, Stephen J. Hadley, Carl Levin, and John McCain.
