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.
