comments on strategic planning in the US

Interesting article by Steven Metz (director of research at the U.S. Army War College Strategic Studies Institute).  Quote .. Other U.S. government agencies follow suit and also avoid thinking about strategic catastrophe.

There is an even greater vacuum at the level of grand strategy. No part of the government plans for how American society could be steeled and mobilized after a catastrophe.”
