The United States' foreign policy priorities

  Often a government's priorities are hidden deep inside it's budget. That is true for the United States as much as any other country. Today, Hillary Clinton spoke before the House's Foreign Affairs Committee in defense of the Obama Administration's request for $52.8 billion for the State Department and USAID, America's foreign policy apparatus. Here's the speech link.
  What the foreign policy community is waiting for, of course, are the results of the government-wide review of U.S. foreign policy strategies and policies. But this budget request gives the clearest vision yet of the priorities the administration will follow in the coming year(s).
  See the Executive Summary of the Fiscal 2011 budget request.
