The United States has the best military in the world, but it must continue to innovate to stay ahead. Today, the United States faces a particularly complex and dangerous security environment. In his job as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff since 2015, General Joseph Dunford has articulated a framework for understanding the threats America and its allies must address, benchmarking the military’s planning, capability development, and assessment of risk against the challenges posed by Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, and violent extremism.

On February 23, the Center for 21st Century Security and Intelligence at Brookings hosted General Dunford for a discussion on American national security priorities and Department of Defense requirements with Senior Fellow Michael O’Hanlon.
