Andrew Bacevich talked the post September 11, 2001, doctrine of preventive war - also sometimes called “The Bush Doctrine.” Professor Bacevich addressed the origins of the Bush Doctrine and how a policy of preventive war became the centerpiece of U.S. national security strategy. He argued that the Bush Doctrine poses a greater danger, both morally and in terms of security, to the United States than the threats it is designed to protect it from and that it should be abrogated. He also responded to questions from members of the audience.

“The Origins of the Bush Doctrine” was a luncheon address of the 2011 conference of the Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations, “Waging War, Making Peace, Crossing Borders,” held at the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center. close
