"The United States is in mortal peril from a false friend:  the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia," according to a mid-June "Decision Brief" by Frank Gaffney, founder and president of the Center for Security Policy (CSP) in Washington, D.C.  "The peril emanates from the totalitarian legal-religious-military-political code the Saudis call Shariah and their assiduous efforts to impose it worldwide.  The danger is enormously exacerbated by the almost-complete failure of American officials at every level of government to acknowledge, let alone act, to prevent the Saudis' true agenda."

Gaffney was Assistant U.S. Secretary of Defense for International Security Policy during the Reagan administration.  As examples of the Saudis' true agenda, he cites financial, logistical, and material support for the perpetrators of the September 11, 2001, attacks and textbooks supplied to religious schools around the world.

"We can no longer pretend that Saudi efforts to impose the agenda, here as well as abroad, are consistent with our national security and other interests," he concludes in the brief.  "And we can no longer tolerate actions by those in the U.S. government aimed at obscuring such behavior, when the practical effect of doing so is to enable it to advance our destruction."

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee substantially supports CSP.
