Rep. Banks on Biden’s National Security Strategy

WASHINGTON—Today, Ranking Member of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Cyber, Innovative Technologies and Information Systems Jim Banks released the following statement in response to the Biden administration’s National Security Strategy:

“After two years of weak foreign policy that has destabilized the Pacific and the Middle East and caused full-blown disasters in Ukraine and Afghanistan, the Biden administration finally released its National Security Strategy. Even after multiple delays, the White House produced a mediocre document that consists of empty slogans doubling down on two years of failed policy and lacks any sort of comprehensive strategy.”

The White House is refocusing national security resources on the left’s social justice and climate issues, instead of responding to the grave threats of China and Russia. It’s wasteful and negligent, continues to damage readiness and recruitment, and is contrary to servicemembers’ values and longstanding principles of American democracy.

The world desperately needs strong American leadership and Joe Biden is falling short.”
