National Military Strategy of the United States of America 2004: A Strategy for Today; A Vision for Tomorrow

05-25-04

'Information operations, both offensive and defensive, are key to ensuring US freedom of action across the battlespace.'

Key points:

We cannot afford to let our recent successes cause us to lose focus or lull us into satisfaction with our current capabilities. The war is not over, and there is still dangerous work to do. To meet this challenge, we continue to focus on three priorities: winning the War on Terrorism, enhancing joint warfighting and transforming for the future.

- On the War on Terror

This mission requires the full integration of all instruments of national power, the cooperation and participation of friends and allies and the support of the American people.

- Jointness

We must strengthen collaboration among our joint forces, agencies at all levels of government and multinational partners. Key to such collaboration is an improved ability to collect, process and share information.

-Transformation

Transformation requires a combination of technology, intellect and cultural adjustments - adjustments that reward innovation and creativity.
