In the Words of Our Enemies

Recorded on July 13, 2007

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

Years before September 11, our enemy warned us - and we weren't listening. We are being warned today - by foes in Iran and North Korea and by radicals and terrorists across the globe - but we are still not listening. Sounding the alarm is bestselling author Jed Babbin, who, by cataloging their own words, chronicles the demagogues, dictators, and death squads openly threatening America - with potentially devastating consequences. 

In the Words of Our Enemies provides insight into what the Islamists themselves are saying about their plans, how the President of Venezuela aims to organize the world's oil supplies against America, how China threatens to drive the United States out of the Pacific, and how even so-called "friendly" countries are conspiring against us.  

Jed Babbin is the author of Inside the Asylum: Why the UN and Old Europe Are Worse Than You Think and Showdown: Why China Wants War with the United States as well as the novel Legacy of Valor.  A former Air Force JAG, he served as a Deputy Undersecretary of Defense in the first Bush Administration, has written for the American Spectator, RealClearPolitics.com, and other outlets, appears frequently on television as a military and foreign affairs analyst, and currently serves as Editor of Human Events and HumanEvents.com.
