National Security Strategy (Nss)

The NSS is an overarching U.S. Government policy document which covers the national security principles underlying U.S. foreign policy. As published in September 2002, its main themes include promoting human dignity through political and economic freedom. providing security against terrorism and weapons of mass destruction. working with others to defuse regional conflicts, and strengthening America's national security institutions. Objectives of development assistance are central to the document, which was prepared by the National Security Council (USAID Automated Directives System - ADS - Chapters 200-203).
