Defense Reform in the 21st Century
More than two dozen retired military and civilian former top Defense Department officials sign an open letter calling for defense and national security reform. Read the press release here.
As interest in major changes to the 1986 Goldwater-Nichols Department of Defense Reorganization Act has grown in recent months, the CSIS International Security Program is hosting a conference on the contemporary problems facing the defense establishment.
