With almost closing two years in the Oval Office Biden administration recently released its National Security Strategy 2022 document on October 12, 2022, representing its view on the greatest and gravest challenges to America. The document is an extension of the Intern National Security Strategic Guidance report that came out last year in March. The 48-pager document starts with the reclamation of the US as the center of power around the globe with a clear shift from President Trump’s ‘America First’ approach to ‘reclaim American leadership’ throughout the globe.

The National Security Strategy (NSS) is a legislatively mandated document that every President of the US publishes after coming into office to demarcate important policy-based areas. The first NSS Document was published under President Reagan’s administration in1987 setting a total of 19 National Security Strategy documents published since. Two during Reagan’s administration; three during George H. Bush’s administration; seven during Clinton’s administration; two during George W. Bush’s administration; two during Obama’s tenure; one under Donald Trump; and two under the current administration in 2021 and 2022.
