Washington Post columnist and novelist David Ignatius describes her as one of Washington’s “problem solvers, not a problem maker.” Still, there’s no question that Ambassador Kay Bailey Hutchison has her work cut out for her as the Permanent Representative of the United States to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. 

NATO has changed dramatically since it was first formed in the aftermath of World War II to protect European nations from potential threats posed by Germany and the Soviet Union.

“There was a lull after the Cold War when we thought that things were going to be peaceful in the world and easy,” Hutchison recently told Ignatius. “Well, it isn’t, but NATO has been the glue that has endured through the hard times.”

Originally an alliance between the United States and 11 nations, NATO now has 29 members. While the mission to stand firmly united against aggression remains the same, the nature of warfare has changed dramatically since 1949. NATO forces are no longer only combating military troops and hardware. The range of threats has expanded exponentially to include terrorism, the rogue pursuit of nuclear capabilities, cyberwarfare, malign influences, election interference, fake news, hacking and other long-game tactics designed to weaken the NATO alliance.
