Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium
America has been at war for years, but until now, it has not
been clear with whom or precisely for what. With the publication of
War Footing, lead-authored by Frank Gaffney, it not only
becomes clear who the enemy is and how high the stakes are, but
also exactly how we can prevail. This is a fight to the death with
Islamofascists, Muslim extremists driven by a totalitarian
political ideology that, like Nazism or Communism before it, is
determined to destroy freedom and the people who love it.
Among those providing analyses and recommendations are: R. James
Woolsey, Victor Davis Hanson, General Tom McInerney, General Paul
Vallely, Alex Alexiev, Andrew McCarthy, Claudia Rosett, Michael
Rubin, Daniel Goure, Caroline Glick, and Michael Waller. Their
inputs - and those of twenty other contributors - offer ten
specific steps that Americans, as individuals and as communities,
can take to ensure their way of life and safety and the future
well-being of their children and grandchildren.
FRANK GAFFNEY founded the Center for Security Policy in 1988
after having held senior positions in the Reagan Defense Department
and on the staffs of leading Democratic and Republican senators. He
holds a Master of Arts degree in International Studies from the
Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies
and a Bachelor of Science degree in Foreign Service from the
Georgetown University School of Foreign Service.
Visiting Fellow in Russian and Eurasian Studies and International Energy Policy in the Douglas and Sarah Allison Center for Foreign and National Security Policy, a division of the Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Institute for International Studies, at The Heritage Foundation
