Default New Report by Stimson Center: A New US Defense Strategy for a New Era

Here is the link to the new Stimson Center report:

http://www.stimson.org/images/upload..._a_New_Era.pdf

I looked at it quickly so I don't have an opinion on it - yet. I did read the statement at the end of the report by Gordon Adams and found it interesting. I'm a consistent viewer of Vago Muridian at defensenewstv.com and have watched a few roundtable discussions involving Adams.

Read the report and it doesn't really say much or at least much of anything new. Save it for bathroom bombing missions reading.

The executive summary reads like a cross between a bunch of CNN talking points and a bad political stump speech. I did some brief checking into the Stimson Center (founders, mission, etc.) and found no agenda red flags. Anyone out there have any knowledge of them?
