Since September eleven, 2001, the United States has been at struggle. and that is approximately all someone can say with sure bet a couple of clash that has rate 7,000 American lives and virtually $2 trillion. so long as the main uncomplicated strategic questions—Who is the enemy? Why are we fighting?—remain unanswered, victory is impossible.

Yet this warfare is eminently winnable if we eliminate our ideological blinders, appropriately identify our enemy, and draw up a technique to defeat him. So says Dr. Sebastian Gorka, some of the most skilled and sought-after experts on counterterrorism. Our enemy isn't "terror" or "violent extremism." Our enemy is the worldwide jihadi circulation, a contemporary totalitarian ideology rooted within the doctrines and martial background of Islam. Taking his cue from the previously top-secret analyses that formed the U.S. reaction to the communist hazard, Dr. Gorka has produced a compelling profile of the jihadi movement—its brain and motivation—and a plan to defeat it.

We focused instead on a specific threat group, which we seemed unwilling to call what it called itself—jihadists, or holy warriors of Islam.

ONLY AMERICA On the beautifully sunny day of Tuesday, September 11, 2001, the jihadists of Al Qaeda managed to do something that neither Hitler nor Stalin had ever achieved.
