14.05.2018 | Mission Impossible? Eight White House Requirements Iran Must Meet as Part of a Post-JCPOA Strategy
Anthony H. Cordesman, the Arleigh A. Burke Chair in Strategy - CSIS

The rush to meet news deadlines and get instant commentary after a major Presidential address or White House policy statement often encourages a peculiar kind of strategic illiteracy. Reporting focuses only on the key policy speech or statement, and on getting instant reactions in the form of commentary and op-eds. No one has the time or immediate access to pay attention to the formal statements and documents that explain or justify a given policy action, and much of the reporting and commentary is rushed and incorrect. Sometimes this leads to exaggerated views and criticism. President Trump's new strategy speech was followed by a flood of exaggerated criticism that ignored the actual strategy document, the text of the Department of Defense national security strategy that followed, and the content of the FY2019 budget submission. It treated a conservative, but balanced set of documents as extreme and almost isolationist. Read the full commentary at the address
