One of the most pervasive criticisms of the current Administration has been its lack of a coherent national strategy. These five retired officers - Bruce K. Holloway, Theodore R. Milton, Bruce Palmer, Jr., Maxwell D. Taylor, and Elmo R. Zumwalt, Jr. - propose a series of objectives around which to build one. The most comprehensive plan is by General Palmer, outlining the need to develop an energy policy, maintain strategic nuclear deterrence, defend NATO, assure access to strategic resources, and maintain technological superiority. Serious policy proposals from well-informed professionals.
