"The Obama administration made an important statement in recently authorizing the Pentagon to order a warship, the U.S.S. Lassen, to transit close to an island constructed by China on a submerged reef in the contested South China Sea," wrote James A. Winnefeld in an opinion piece which appeared in the Boston Globe, November 8, 2015.

The former vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Winnefeld is a distinguished professor in The Sam Nunn School of International Affairs and a non-resident fellow at Harvard’s Kennedy School.

"Key U.S. interests served include protection of the global economic system, the security of our allies in the region, and preserving the rules-based international order that has maintained peace in the Asia-Pacific region for decades."
