Had the privilege to be in DC and attend this morning's release of the CNA Military Advisory Board (MAB's) report: Powering America's Defense: Energy and the Risks to National Security. From my vantage point, it was the highest powered group of folks gathered in one place on this topic since the Admiral Moorer military energy security conference I attended last December at NDU.
And in some ways this group, comprised entirely of retired generals and admirals, with the leadership of the MAB's outstanding Executive Director Sherri Goodman from CNA, had an aggregate of experience and wisdom on energy security matters beyond anything seen before outside the DSB Task Force reports on energy. In fact, one of the MAB members, Admiral Richard Truly, was co-chair of of the seminal 2001 DSB energy report. But's it's 2009, and though I'll be posting in more detail on this soon, I highly recommend you read the just-released work from this fine team.
