Since the 1960s, the U.S. National Security Council (NSC) has been addicted to crises. As the lynchpin of the U.S. national security apparatus, the rest of the U.S. government takes its cues from this key inter-agency body.  But the problems of today are all encompassing to the NSC and planning for the future is often sacrificed as a result.  But this wasn’t always the case.  Analysis of the NSC origins, its structure, and its role in supporting decision-making will aid in understanding why the crisis affliction persists and give potential insights into how it can be partially remedied, as well as the benefits for enhancing how each department thinks about the future.
