Host: Hillsdale College. First Principles on First Fridays. Instead of seeking victory in a war against radical Islamic terrorism, the Obama administration has framed our efforts as law enforcement. Whether in Mirandizing the would-be Christmas bomber, initially seeking to try Khalid Sheikh Muhammed in a New York City civilian courtroom, or engaging in a headlong rush to close the Guantanamo Bay prison, the president's Justice Department has politicized justice and imperiled national security. These misguided efforts, as Andrew McCarthy argues, are confusing, but even more, mark a security and constitutional crisis. Charting a different path, this talk will offer a preview of the speaker's forthcoming book, The Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America.
