Gen. Bantz J. Craddock quote
Gen. Bantz J. Craddock, NATO's supreme allied commander in testimony to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, March 12. Several eastern European nations, including Croatia, Albania and Macedonia wish to join NATO.

NATO's enlargement has been an historical success, strengthening our alliance and serving as a powerful incentive to promote democratic reforms among aspiring members. I believe the process of NATO enlargement is not complete. NATO's door must remain open. However, NATO candidates must provide added value to the alliance. They must be contributors to security, not consumers of it.
