The House Armed Services Committee asked the group of scholars who took part in a joint think tank strategic choices exercise we held last year to testify before the committee about the insights they gained from the exercise. I testified first by giving an overview of the exercise and the challenge posed to the teams. I was followed by Nora Bensahel from American University (formerly from CNAS), Ryan Crotty from CSIS, Thomas Donnelly from AEI, and Jim Thomas from CSBA.
