What Next for U.S. Northern Command?

Recorded on August 20, 2008

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Allison Auditorium

Seven years after 9/11, the United States has yet to suffer another major attack.  Credit for this is due in part to the efforts of USNORTHCOM, stood up only one year after the attacks.  The Command's vast area of responsibility includes air, land and sea approaches and encompasses the continental United States, Alaska, Canada, Mexico and the surrounding waters out to approximately 500 nautical miles.  Join us as General Victor Renuart discusses his duties as commander of USNORTHCOM and his thoughts on the priorities and challenges for this command under a new Presidential Administration.
