PNSR presented these in its report "Forging a New Shield".
The PNSR study reflects the view of many since the end of the Cold War that a major restructuring of the organization and operating processes of the United States Government in the national security arena is needed to reflect the very different international environment of multi-agency and multi-subject challenges we now face.
PNSR adopted the following definition of national security that encompasses the expanded scope: National security is the capacity of the United States to define, defend, and advance its position in a world that is being continuously reshaped by turbulent forces of change.
The flaws I have described above--the expansion of the concept of "national security' to include almost all of the functions of government, the establishment of a "prime-ministerial' form of government, the creation of a separate and parallel governmental structure--are the major and invalidating flaws of the PNSR report.
The 2007 legislative changes to Goldwater-Nichols also set the stage for a greater role for organizations that might serve as interagency planning fora, as suggested in the PNSR report.
