Hagel: Military must adapt to stay relevant

Posted: Updated:

(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
