Defense Science Board "study, titled 'Strategic Communication,' calls for restructuring how the government organizes and disseminates the nation’s messages. A set of briefing slides that accompanies the study includes a recommendation to consolidate the government’s various efforts by appointing a deputy national security adviser who would serve as assistant to the president for strategic communication. It also urges creating a permanent deputy under secretary of defense for policy in charge of strategic communication." New York Times, 14 November 2007. If U.S. international broadcasting is brought under this deputy, it would be the end of the credibility and thus the end of the effectiveness of U.S. international broadcasting.
