Statement from ASP CEO BGen Stephen A. Cheney USMC (Ret.):
“The American Security Project congratulates its former Board Member Susan Rice on her appointment as National Security Advisor. She joins two other former ASP Board Members now serving their nation at the highest level: Secretary of State John Kerry, and Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel.
More that ever, our nation needs to coordinate all the elements that make strong national security – developing a compressive national security strategy and structure; combating terrorism; developing real energy security; tackling climate change; speaking with credibility and professionalism around the world; and enhancing our economic strength. These are what our board members have asked ASP to help develop and offer realistic strategic proposals. We know that Ambassador Rice will take these issues forward in the professional manor with which she has been known in her new position.”
