President Obama’s first 100 days have seen an enormous amount of activity on national security – travel by the President, his Cabinet and envoys, gestures intended to signal a change in the US’s approach to the world, and substantive reforms to policy overseas and the conduct of policy at home. In 100 days, the Obama Administration has taken more than 100 actions that are reshaping American foreign policy, reversing the failures of the Bush Administration, and renewing America’s standing in the world.
Ten of the most significant actions are:
• Moving to end the war in Iraq and ensure that it no longer dominates all other American national security interests;
• Refocusing on Afghanistan and Pakistan and preparing a comprehensive strategy to address the threat posed by Al Qaeda there;
• Leading a global response to the economic crisis through the G20, obtaining commitments of $1.1 trillion to safeguard the world’s most vulnerable economies;
• Returning to techniques that are proven and moral standards that the world looks to us to uphold by banning torture and moving to close the Guantanamo Bay detention center;
• Reinvigorating the transatlantic alliance by treating our European allies as full partners, supporting a growing role for the European Union, and mediating among allies at the NATO Summit;
• Setting out a major agenda to protect Americans from the spread and use of deadly weapons, with a long-term commitment to work toward eliminating nuclear weapons and an immediate plan to negotiate new nuclear weapons cuts with Russia;
• Re-engaging with Muslim nations through targeted, positive public diplomacy;
• Presenting a national security budget that prepares the US for 21st century challenges, begins to rebalance between civilian and military programs and targets unnecessary, ineffective and wasteful spending;
• Inaugurating a new era of improved relations in our own hemisphere by beginning to open to Cuba and investing in a plan to help Mexico fight drug cartels;
• Reaching out to begin a new approach to Iran based on negotiations and rebuilding consensus among key US partners.
