Under Obama, Are More Terror Attacks Imminent?

By Douglas V. Gibbs

A lot of concern over Barack Obama's weak position regarding the war on terror, and his unwillingness to identify the enemy as being the Islamic Jihad while ordering "profiling" of Muslims between the ages of 18 and 40, leads one to believe that more terror attacks against the United States may be on the horizon. Frank Gaffney served as the deputy assistant secretary of defense for international security during the Reagan administration, and he says that after observing the first year of the Obama presidency, "it's clear there must be a dramatic change of direction in U.S. foreign policy." This includes President Obama's decision to try terrorist suspects in U.S. civilian courts rather than military tribunals.

Frank Gaffney now runs the Center for Security Policy in Washington, DC, and has previously outlined what he labels "the Obama Doctrine," which is: "embolden our enemies, undermine our allies, and diminish our country."

Gaffney argues that the U.S. cannot afford to continue on the same course the remaining three years of Obama's term, otherwise we "will be attacked."
