The report summarized the policies and methods of counterterrorism of the United States it did not propose something new in conceptions.
Some voice-over of Obama can be realized, however, if comprehend the report in a background that Osama bin Laden was killed by the US.
First, the United States want to give up the responsibility to counterterrorism. Second, the strategy will change from attack to the defense. Third, the report’s voice-over might tell the terrorists that do not attack the US, and they can choose other targets.
