Upon taking office, President Obama directed a comprehensive review of U.S. ballistic missile defense (BMD) policies, strategies, plans, and programs. The United States Congress also mandated that the Department of Defense (DoD) conduct a review of ballistic missile defense strategy and policy. This report contains the findings and recommendations pursuant to this guidance. It addresses the matters of particular interest to Congress, and does so in a broad framework that reflects the President's guidance and sets out associated policy and programmatic decisions reflected in the current budget proposals. This report serves multiple purposes. It is intended to match U.S. strategies, policies, and capabilities to the requirements of the 21st-century threats facing the nation now and in the future and to inform DoD planning, programming, budgeting, and oversight. It is also intended to facilitate executive-legislative dialogue and decision making, dialogue with allies and partners, and informed public discussion of key policy choices.
