515. 2/18/1992

“In [February 18] 1992, aides to Secretary of Defense [Dick] Cheney, supervised by [Undersecretary of Defense] Paul Wolfowitz and [Cheney’s Chief of Staff] I. Lewis ‘Scooter’ Libby…prepared a document known as the Defense Planning Guidance (DPG). This document was the military’s blueprint for planning, building, and deploying forces in fiscal years 1994 through 1999. While never officially finalized, in fact, it was a completed document, and a working draft of the DPG was leaked to the Washington Post and the New York Times. The full text was not reproduced, but the content is well known and appears to line up closely with the principles put forth in the 2002 NSS [National Security Strategy].”
