Kings College Speech of Secretary Panetta

01/31/2013: Defense Secretary Leon Panetta speaks about the future of the transatlantic Alliance and calls for resolve in the face of a myriad of security threats facing the U.S. and Europe, and calls on European allies to help transform NATO to meet those common challenges. 

In particular, the Secretary is calling for the U.S. and Europe to work together on cybersecurity and Asia-Pacific security issues.

These are priorities he has made for the Department of Defense, and on his final trip to Europe, he believes they are paramount for the alliance as well.

This excerpt looks at some comments with regard to evolving threats in the 21st century and what he sees as the new US defense strategy.
