Synopsis

It is imperative that we implement effective policies that address the causes, conditions, and misunderstandings that have brought the world to the current impasse. The Century Foundation's Defeating the Jihadists: A Blueprint for Action builds on the findings of the 9/11 Commission and provides a detailed plan for creating a more secure world. It is essential reading. -- Bob Kerrey, president, New School University Defeating the Jihadists: A Blueprint for Action, the report of a task force assembled and chaired by Richard A. Clarke, assesses the nation's successes and failures in fighting terrorism and provides a detailed action plan for neutralizing the international movement at the core of worldwide terrorism. Central to these plans are the group's proposals for significant changes in U.S. policy toward key Muslim countries. The report also describes the nature of the jihadist threat; provides comprehensive profiles of the various groups; and offers a rationale for the effort and money that would be needed to make the plan a success. Key strategies covered in depth include: focus on winning the Battle of Ideas; invest in education and development in Islamic nations; implement tailored strategies for key countries, particularly Iran, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Iraq; defuse sources of Islamic hatred for the United States; improve U.S. intelligence and law enforcement organization; reinvigorate efforts to combat terrorist financing; improve U.S. military organization; and accelerate security investments for ports, trains, and chemical plants.
