NSC-68


This once-classified document was secretly drawn up by the United States' National Security Council in 1950 to establish what the Cold War was going to be, what the American people were to believe it was (not at all the same thing), and how the US was going to secure it's place as the one and only global power during the 2nd half of the 20th century. Perhaps the "classic" Cold War document, 52 years later it still serves as an excellent example of early neoconservative thinking.
The name NSC-68 indicates that this was the 68th report issued by the National Security Council.
