Episode 73 of the Irregular Warfare Podcast examines the National Defense Strategy and the way it interacts with irregular warfare.
Our guests begin by describing the importance of the NDS and the way it distills guidance from the National Security Strategy down to the Pentagon. They then examine how the military operationalizes strategic guidance from the NDS. Finally, they discuss how the NDS affects irregular warfare efforts and the interagency approach needed to optimize America’s ability to defend its interests.
