Citations from CNA's "Powering America's Defense" Report & Conference

Over the next few days I'm going to feed you a series of nutritious quotes and citations from yesterday's event. The first one is from Senator Richard Lugar, in support of CNA's work:
Energy security is national security. Oil precipitates conflict, it ties the hands of those seeking peace, and it puts the lives of our soldiers at greater risk. I strongly agree with the stark conclusion of CNA's Military Advisory Board (MAB): anyone serious about American military and diplomatic strength must be serious about energy. 
Congress, Senior DOD leadership and the President are increasingly in alignment on energy, as you'll see in subsequent posts from CNA. Stay tuned.
