Senator Gary Hart on What’s Wrong with U.S Foreign Policy in TIME Magazine

share this

In an online article out today and in this week’s TIME Magazine issue, foreign affairs columnist Ian Bremmer looked at “the drift that has afflicted U.S. foreign policy, and the desperate need for a new direction,” just as he does in his new book Superpower: Three Choices for America’s Role in the World.

Bremmer asked leaders in international business and government to join the conversation by finishing the sentence:

“The biggest problem in American foreign policy today is…”

ASP founding member, Chairperson Emeritus and board member former Senator Gary Hart was among those Bremmer asked for input:

“Finding unifying, organizing principles for dealing with a diverse, multipolar world.” —Gary Hart, former U.S. Senator

 

Hart’s reply, and those of the other leaders quoted, are in unison with American Security Project’s core mission and values.

“[That] we have substituted comprehensive foreign policy with reactive, improvisational tactics.” —Greg Brown, CEO of Motorola

“Our inability to develop a bipartisan national strategy and stick with it.” —Jon Huntsman, former U.S. Ambassador to China

“The absence of policy consensus coupled with domestic political dysfunction.” —Richard Haass, president of the Council on Foreign Relations

“A bipartisanship deficit, obscuring national strengths and undermining global leadership.” —William Burns, president of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace
