Reimagining the global community and supporting America's defense
Senator Casey believes that diplomatic engagement, working with our allies, and robust foreign assistance are the best ways to promote America’s interests abroad. However, these efforts must be coupled with a strong national security apparatus and investments in deterrence and self-defense.
The national security challenges facing our Nation today are immense. They include competing with China in a complex global economy, as Chinese actions increasingly undermine American interests; taking a global leadership role and working with allies to combat climate change; protecting our Nation from terrorists; countering Russia's malign activities; supporting our stalwart ally, Israel; the responsible drawdown of U.S. and international forces in Afghanistan, concurrent with political, security, and civil society progress in the country; and bolstering international efforts to combat the grave threat of nuclear terrorism.
As a member of the Select Committee on Intelligence, Senator Casey continues to work to pursue a national security strategy that protects our interests, promotes human rights and democracy worldwide, and supports those who serve our Nation.
