For all the progress the United States has made in fighting terrorist networks, there has been a general failure to confront the terrorism problem's ideological center of gravity. A new Hudson Institute study examines how the U.S. government could mount an effort to address this failure by working to change the ideological climate in the Muslim world. The study identifies which types of governmental and nongovernmental organizations should be created to conduct this effort.
Produced by Douglas J. Feith and Abram N. Shulsky of Hudson Institute and William A. Galston of Brookings, the study argues that the various Islamist terrorist groups around the world are linked by ideology— common beliefs about their duties as Muslims that spawn and intensify hostility to the United States and to the West in general.
Hudson Institute hosted a panel discussion in which two distinguished commentators discussed the report with its authors:
James Glassman, Executive Director of the George W. Bush Institute and former Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs in the George W. Bush Administration
Will Marshall, Founder and President of the Progressive Policy Institute
Douglas J. Feith, Hudson Institute Senior Fellow and former Under Secretary of Defense for Policy in the George W. Bush Administration
William A. Galston, Brookings Institution Ezra K. Zilkha Chair in Governance Studies and former Deputy Assistant to President Clinton for Domestic Policy
Abram N. Shulsky, Hudson Institute Senior Fellow and former Defense Department official
Kenneth Weinstein, Will Marshall, James Glassman, Douglas Feith, William Galston, and Abram Shulsky
