Hagel: Military must adapt to stay relevant

(CNN)- 

Most
of the pressing security challenges today give important political,
economic, and cultural components, and do not necessary lend themselves
to being resolved by conventional military strength.  Indeed the most
destructive, horrific attack ever in the United States came not from
fleets of ships, bombers or armored divisions, but from 19 fanatical men
wielding box cutters and one way plane tickets.  So our military must
continue to adapt, adapt in order to remain effective and relevant in
the face of threats markedly different than those that shaped our
defense institutions during the Cold War. 

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel
