War Footing: 10 Steps America Must Take to Prevail in the War for the Free World

Recorded on January 24, 2006

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.
