JFQ: Joint Force Quarterly;Autumn2005, Issue 39, p108
The article discusses the need for a national communications strategy as a subset of national security strategy in the U.S. This national communications strategy should coequal with the political strategy overseen by the U.S. Department of State, the economic strategy led by the National Security Council Office of International Economic Affairs, and the national military strategy implemented by the U.S. Secretary of Defense and the uniformed military. This call for a national communications strategy is for better coordination of information efforts among agencies.
