Frank Gaffney’s Secure Freedom Minute: Restore NATO’s Deterrent

NATO is expected today to respond to the growing threat from Vladimir Putin’s Russia by reconstituting a rapid-reaction force. It’s to be capable of deploying anywhere in a handful of days. Such a capability would be welcome, and maybe even helpful. Sep 5, 2014 11:27 AM PT

Frank Gaffney’s Secure Freedom Minute: A Supreme NATO Commander

Official truth-telling about national security is in short supply these days. Western governments dissemble about the Islamic connection to jihad and its progress globally. Chinese aggression is minimized and excused. Iranian nuclear ambitions are enabled, while we’re told they are being foreclosed. Sep 4, 2014 1:58 PM PT

Will ISIS Strike America's Achilles Heel?

Among the targets national security professionals fear may now be in the jihadis' crosshairs is America’s exceedingly vulnerable electric grid. A panel discussion being held at the National Press Club in Washington Wednesday afternoon will show how a spate of recent attacks involving sabotage and destruction of property at various electric substations here and elsewhere could be leading indicators of the next 9/11 – one potentially vastly more destructive than the original which occurred thirteen years ago next week.

Frank Gaffney’s Secure Freedom Minute: Obama’s Disastrous Mideast Legacy

Aerial attacks launched from Egypt into Libya underscore, yet again, the abject failure of the Obama administration’s policy in the Middle East. Nations relatively aligned with us now face alone the predictably awful results of America’s involvement in the overthrow of a relatively friendly autocrat, Muammar Qaddafi. Aug 27, 2014 1:42 PM PT

Secure Freedom Minute: Declare War on Shariah

The menacing ruthlessness of the jihadist group that calls itself the Islamic State is prompting some to say the United States should declare war on these increasingly powerful terrorists. Aug 25, 2014 8:57 AM PT

Declare War on Shariah

The National Journal called earlier this week for the United States to “declare war on ISIS.” The magazine is right to argue for a new authorization for the use of military force (AUMF), a legislative vehicle that passes these days for a congressional declaration of war. It is wrong, however, to urge that the existing AUMF, which targets al Qaeda and “associated forces,” be replaced by one that focuses just on the Islamic State (also known as the Islamic State in Iraq and the Sham/Syria, or ISIS, or the Islamic State in the Levant, or ISIL).

Obama's Post-Foley Fraud About Shariah

President Barack Obama found time between golf rounds Thursday to condemn the beheading of American journalist James Foley by the Islamic State (also known as the Islamic State in the Levant or ISIL) and to assure the American people that he was all about protecting them against similar fates.

Obama Wants to 'Power Africa': What About Keeping the Lights On in America?

The centerpiece of President Obama’s Africa Summit appears to be a new “Power Africa” that envisions a commitment of as much as $7 billion in government spending and loan guarantees and $9 billion in private-sector investments to help bring electricity to millions of Africans.

The Right's Unilateral Disarmers

For several years now, some on the political right have portrayed the U.S. Export-Import Bank (Exim) as an exemplar of inappropriate federal government involvement in activities that should be left to the private sector. Worse, Exim is portrayed as engaging in “crony capitalism” – loosely defined as picking winners and losers on the basis of political connections, and favoring the former with taxpayer largesse.
