Obama's new security strategy

New US security strategy dumps Bush anti-terror doctrine to focus on managing threats.



    Barack Obama, the US president, has unveiled a new national security strategythat moves away from the Bush doctrine of pre-emptive strikes to one which stresses international co-operation. 

    However, the US maintains the right to act unilaterally and it is not softening its push for new sanctions against Iran over its nuclear programme.
