Military transformation

This WaPo story by Bradley Graham considers the Pentagon’s "Terms of Reference" which will set the framework for the Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR), which Congress has mandated to compel a comprehensive look at U.S. military strategy at the start of each presidential term. Although the process and the TOR is supposed to be secret, the WaPo appears to know much. For a variety of reasons, Rumsfeld seems to be in a position to initiate a much more fundamental transformation than has happened in the recent past. The transformation, in large measure, will move away from building forces only to deal with major combat operations.
