A message from Frank Gaffney
Barack Obama ran for the White House on a platform that explicitly repudiated many of the principles and initiatives that have made it possible for this country to be spared since 9/11 any new devastating attacks. On the line are the fruits of countless hard-won battles in which the Center for Security Policy has played an important, and occasionally decisive, role.
These include: the adoption of the Patriot Act; the deployment of missile defenses; securing authority for our intelligence agencies to monitor the enemy’s communications, to confine securely the illegal combatants we capture and to elicit information from them; blocking the ratification of international accords that could restrict our freedom of action and sap our sovereignty; and heightening public awareness that non-violent “stealth jihad” may be as toxic to our society as the more obvious threat of terrorism and mass destruction.
Well into the Obama administration, we are seeing these accomplishments dismantled, in whole or in part. In their stead will come a program aimed at: gutting our military; denying law enforcement and intelligence agencies the tools they need to keep us secure; and exposing us to new, seditious Shariah initiatives at home.
The result would be predictable: An inexorable intensification of the threat to America, its people and their way of life. Enemies appeased, but emboldened. Allies demoralized. Our sovereignty eroded. The steady, if stealthy, insinuation of Islam’s Shariah law into our nation.
Fortunately, over the past two decades, we at the Center for Security Policy have demonstrated an ability to rise to such challenges—and to help our countrymen and their elected representatives do the same. We have done so by serving as what we call “the Special Forces in the War of Ideas.”
Like our military’s elite special operations units, ours is a small but dedicated and highly skilled team. Like them too, we make outsized contributions, in our case by applying ideas that matter in ways that translate into policy and political impact. Never before has our country needed such ideas more, and the sort of expertise we have in bringing them to bear with effect.
To perform as we must in this moment of both risk and opportunity will take the generous support of those who appreciate the growing requirement for our unique contributions.
We stand ready to do our part on both fronts. But we need your assistance to do so.
While there are costs associated with acting in support of the Center, there are assuredly costs associated with inaction. Unfortunately, the latter costs will be borne by those we love. And history tells us that costs deferred are always greater and paid in currencies, notably lives, far more precious than money.
Please do today what you can to ensure that we pass on to our loved ones the freedom we enjoy. If you do your part now by giving as generously as you can, you may be sure that we will do ours, to the lasting benefit of this generation and those to come.
With best regards and heartfelt thanks for your love of our country and your help in securing it.

Four Years Running: Charity Navigator Rates the Center for Security Policy ‘Four-Stars’
