New US security goals prize non-military security

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Obama administration's new outline of the top goals for U.S. national security will say that the United States should maintain its military advantage over the rest of the world while prizing other kinds of power.

The Associated Press obtained details of the forthcoming National Security Strategy. The White House plans to release the document this week.

The document says the highest priority for national security is the safety of Americans. It says the U.S. must galvanize support abroad and at home to address global challenges.

The strategy points to diplomacy, development and other levers to shape a more peaceful world.
