The Obama administration is set to release its National Security Strategy today. It is expected to take a sharp turn away from the doctrines President George W. Bush, which focused security on fighting terrorism, even if that meant acting unilaterality. According to The New York Times, the strategy says that "preserving American leadership in the world hinges on learning to accept and manage the rise of many competitors." 

For a look at the specifics of what the new strategy holds is David Sanger, chief Washington correspondent for The New York Times.
