P. 10 Intercepts
“The 9/11 era is drawing to a close, and it’s time to plan for the post-9/11 era.” The new era “will surpass the Cold War in terms of global posturing, and there is a blurred distinction between our vital and our peripheral geographical interests. The 21st century enemy is unlikely to fight the way we would prefer.”
