Title National Level Engagement Strategy: A Framework for Action.
Publication Date May 2012
Media Count 82p
Personal Author S. P. LeRoy
Abstract To protect America's National Security in a post-drawdown world, the President needs to institute a high-level agency whose sole purpose is to decide where to expend our resources to combat terrorism around the world and preserve our national interests. The United States has come full circle from the time of President Clinton, who had a selective-engagement policy, through George W. Bush, who implemented a preemptive strike policy, and back to the current selective-engagement policy of President Obama. However, the selection process is like a game of 'whack-a-mole.' This thesis explains how the United States got to where it is now, what the nation is facing in the current Global environment. and what needs to be done to allow it to maintain a Phase 0 end- state globally. The thesis develops a comprehensive framework that synergizes 'whole-of-government' efforts on weak, failing, or failed states that fall within the intersection of the strategic environment, the United States' desired end-state, and benefit for the engaged state. This framework represents the hierarchal relationship between national interests and the effects of increased whole-of-government efforts. Implementation of a Joint Interagency Engagement Group enables a whole-of-government approach to engagement strategy that promotes national interests, preserves National Security, and unifies the engagement process towards national interests.
