The Pentagon’s National Defense Strategy declares that the United States has entered a renewed period of great power competition. To pursue this new strategic direction, the Department of Defense requires new budgetary resources, new operational concepts, and energetic oversight from the country’s political leadership — in other words, partners in Congress.

Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI) and Rep. Jimmy Panetta (D-CA) join AEI’s Mackenzie Eaglen to discuss current national defense issues, the National Defense Strategy, and the importance of cutting across party lines.

This event took place on February 28, 2019.
