For over six decades, maintaining a strong NATO Alliance has been one of the most important strategic objectives of the United States. Every American President since Harry Truman, Republican and Democrat, has believed that defending our alliance of democracies is a vital U.S. interest, especially the core commitment enshrined in Article 5 of the NATO treaty — that an attack on one of us is an attack on all of us.
