The Army and Ballistic Missile Defense
June 20, 2013
Reserve Officers Association, 5th floor
One Constitution Ave., NE
Washington, DC, United States
Open to the General Public
Time: 09:30 - 11:00
The U.S. Army plays an important although largely underappreciated role in ballistic missile defense around the world. Is that role likely to grow as a result of Phased Adaptive Approaches in Europe, the Far East, and the Persian Gulf? Should the Army take on greater responsibility in this issue area? Three panelists will address these and related issues in the context of sequestration, the rebalance to the Asia-Pacific region, and questions on the future size and missions of the Army – Dr. John R. Deni of the Strategic Studies Institute at the U.S. Army War College will roll out his recently co-authored monograph on the Army role in NATO missile defense; Mr. Jim Thomas of the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments will discuss his recent piece in Foreign Affairs on how missiles could be the centerpiece of the Army’s post-ISAF mission; and Amb. Steven Pifer of the Brookings Institution will address the broader policy questions.
