In the 2010 National Security Strategy, released on May 27, 2010, President Barack Obama wrote: ” ‘the gravest danger to the American people and global security continues to come from weapons of mass destruction, particularly nuclear weapons.’ But he also dwelled on cyber threats, climate change and America’s dependence on fossil fuels as fundamental national security issues, issues that received relatively little or no attention in [former President] Mr. Bush’s [National Security Strategy] document, although his administration focused on them more in its second term.”

 – David E. Sanger and Peter Baker, “New U.S. Strategy Focuses on Managing Threats,” The New York Times, May 27, 2010
