Why We’re Losing the War to Bloodthirsty Jihad

June 30th, 2016 | Posted in News

WASHINGTON, D.C. — America is losing the “war on terror,” and many say that this war is unwinnable and could last for years to come. We are, indeed, losing the war, says Dr. Sebastian Gorka, one of the world’s leading authorities on counterterrorism.  However, the war is imminently winnable, he claims, and in his new book, Defeating Jihad: The Winnable War (April 11; Regnery Publishing; 978-1-62157-457-6; $27.99), Gorka reveals how America can defeat jihad quickly and effectively.

We have been at war since 2001, Gorka points out, and yet we still refuse to answer the basic question: “Who are we fighting?” Gorka adds that the cardinal rule of war is “know yourself, know your enemy,” yet Presidents Bush and Obama have failed to accurately name our enemy. Gorka argues that we are not fighting “terror,” but a global jihadi movement, a totalitarian ideology rooted deep in Islam. But our political correctness has blinded us to this fact and the clear-eyed strategies that can win the war.

America has defeated totalitarian enemies before. Drawing on military history as well as his expertise in counterterrorism and intelligence, Gorka lays out an explosive and desperately needed strategy to win the “war on terror” before it is too late.


Among the many startling revelations in Defeating Jihad:

  • Why America is the only nation positioned to defeat the global jihadist movement
  • Why the tactics we’ve employed are doomed to failure and we must take a different approach in order to win
  • The role that education and counterpropaganda must play in the war against jihad
  • How to evaluate the presidential candidates on their likely ability to win the war on jihad
  • How the toxic political agenda has put our country in grave danger and corrupted our national security
  • What our next commander-in-chief must do differently from previous administrations
  • What top-secret Cold War documents can teach us about jihad
