"When you lose the kind of respect — and we've watched it deteriorate to the extent we've seen it deteriorate — you start off in the hole," Jumper said. "We need to get that back.

"We need to restore our diplomatic power. We need to back it with the elements of U.S. power, including the military that we've had in the past.

Bush "is the guy who understands this," Jumper told Berliner. "He's got a thoughtful and written-down policy to address our national strategic parties around the world.

"It's a global perspective. It's one that is thoughtful. It has the respect of the U.S. military.

"It doesn't necessarily require just throwing money at the defense budget," he said. "It's more thoughtful than that."
