More About the Author
Mr. Gaffney is the host of Secure Freedom Radio, a nationally-syndicated radio program heard weeknights throught the country. On Secure Freedom Radio, Mr. Gaffney addresses current and emerging threats to national security, sovereignty and our ways of life. Featured guests have included Newt Gingrich, John Bolton, and many current and former policymakers and elected officials.
Mr. Gaffney is the lead-author of War Footing: Ten Steps America Must Take to Prevail in the War for the Free World (Naval Institute Press, 2005). With a foreword by former CIA Director R. James Woolsey, an introduction by Victor Davis Hanson and contributions from thirty-two other accomplished security policy practitioners, this highly acclaimed volume constitutes an "owners manual" for the new global conflict in which America finds itself engaged - the War for the Free World. War Footing draws upon the work program of the Center for Security Policy and offers practical steps for mobilizing the Nation and other freedom-loving peoples to enable their victory over those who would destroy them.
Mr. Gaffney also contributes actively to the security policy debate in his capacity as a weekly columnist for the Washington Times, TownHall.com, and JewishWorldReview.com. He is a contributor to National Review Online and his columns also appear periodically in WorldNetDaily.com, the New York Post and FrontPageMagazine.com. He is a featured weekly contributor to Hugh Hewitt's nationally syndicated radio program and a frequent guest on syndicated programs with hosts like: Lars Larsen, Monica Crowley, Janet Parshall, Michael Reagan and Jim Bohannan. In addition, he appears often on national and international television and radio news programs. Over the years, his op.ed. articles have appeared in such publications as: The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, The New Republic, The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Christian Science Monitor, The Los Angeles Times, National Review, Newsday, American Legion Magazine, and Commentary.
In April 1987, Mr. Gaffney was nominated by President Reagan to become the Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Policy, the senior position in the Defense Department with responsibility for policies involving nuclear forces, arms control and U.S.-European defense relations. He acted in that capacity for seven months during which time, he was the Chairman of the prestigious High Level Group, NATO's senior politico-military committee. He also represented the Secretary of Defense in key U.S.-Soviet negotiations and ministerial meetings.
From August 1983 until November 1987, Mr. Gaffney was the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Nuclear Forces and Arms Control Policy under Assistant Secretary Richard Perle.
From February 1981 to August 1983, Mr. Gaffney was a Professional Staff Member on the Senate Armed Services Committee, chaired by Senator John Tower (R-Texas). And, in the latter 1970's, Mr. Gaffney served as an aide to the late Senator Henry M. "Scoop" Jackson (D-Washington) in the areas of defense and foreign policy.
Mr. Gaffney holds a Master of Arts degree in International Studies from the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies and a Bachelor of Science in Foreign Service from the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service.
Mr. Gaffney's leadership has been recognized by numerous organizations including: the Department of Defense Distinguished Public Service Award (1987), the U.S. Business and Industry Council's Defender of the National Interest Award (1994), the Navy League of the United States' "Alfred Thayer Mahan Literary Achievement Award" (1999), and the Zionist Organization of America's "Louis Brandeis Award" (2003).
Mr. Gaffney was born in 1953 and resides in the Washington area.

It clarifies how Islam is NOT just a religion, but an entire way of life that includes its own codified law called Shariah, which is meant to rule over the entire world and be enforced against ALL people, not just Muslims. It identifies how Shariah Law contradicts many of the protections in the Bill of Rights, and especially women's rights (specifically, such behavior as underage and forced marriages, honor killing, female genital mutilation, polygamy, and domestic abuse including marital rape--where's the National Organization for Women (NOW) when you need them?). It clarifies how senior government officials, as well as generals and admirals in the military, are failing their oath to protect and defend the Constitution. It highlights why anyone supporting Shariah in the United States is commiting sedition and treason. It identifies how the Muslim Brotherhood are secretly waging a "stealth Jihad" through scores of front organizations.
The West is led to believe that Jihad is nothing more than an "inner struggle" while there are in fact four types of Jihad: of the heart, the tongue, the pen, and the sword.Read more ›
And since these topics have crept up everywhere, both supporters and opponents of Shariah in particular, or Islam in general, have often accused the other side of lying, of manipulation and distoring the truth.
I myself have read a few books on the issue, and in both cases was dissapointed in finding general rants against the other side for not seeing the errors in their view.
However, I am very pleased to find this book refreshingly well written. It never gets boring, but is not written in obvious attention-grabbing language. It is mostly objective, and where needed, references are cited (which is a feature all too lacking in most books nowadays).
One may argue that the writers of the book are over-paranoid and exagerating when they name it "The threat", but the extensive research into the matter suggests that the accusations against the muslim brotherhood, which has its activies heavily analyzed here, are indeed valid. Without having to resort to petty namecalling or pseudo-theologist arguments, the book covers recent as well as past events. It argues against the engagement and adoptment to Shariah.
There are some who have claimed to me that this book was "racist", or "character-assasinating" all muslims and so on. Nothing could be further from the truth. The criticism and warning in this book is issued in respect to an ideologoy, in this case a religious ideology, and certain organizations following this religious ideology.Read more ›
This society and the West in general had better recognize the threat posed by the stealth jihadists, who feign moderation but at every opportunity attempt to enforce Shari'a compliance.
The work of Mr. Gaffney and his associates, in putting together this study is such a breath of fresh air that it should be required reading by the incoming Congress, which will hopefully jettison the destructive approach to Islamism that this administration has adopted.
When you hear charges of Islamophobia in the West, it simply means that someone has had the courage to tell the truth.
Having read some three dozen books on Islam since 9/11, I was pleasantly surprised how this report managed in one volume to condense all the crucial relevant for us information on Islam I had learned in the last 9 years from various sources. The report builds an air tight case because it uses extensive quotes from the original Muslim sources as well as the writings of John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and John Quincy Adams. No American will remain indifferent once he or she has read the report.
Almost all of the information presented in the report has been available on line for a long time, yet most people were either reluctant to look into this quite easily accessible information, did not know where to look or did not know its significance. This is now no longer the case since a plethora of security experts, among whom are former Director of CIA and a former Commander-in-Chief, Pacific Fleet, have put their names behind this report. This is the report you should read and it carries weight.
The report makes the point that it is the US President's constitutional duty to understand the threat: "It is, therefore, fair to ask of U.S. officials with national security responsibilities whether the failure to know an enemy violates not only professional rules of competency but their solemn oath of office? After all, if an officeholder must "protect and defend against all enemies" (N.B.Read more ›
