This document examines the United States response to the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. The success of the U.S. response largely resulted from the thorough integration and flexibility of the involved government organizations, which allowed for the development of ad hoc mechanisms within a broad strategic framework. The aftermath of the tsunami additionally demonstrated that the provision of relief assistance can be a key instrument of national power.
