About this Item

iii, 66 p. Title continued: Held May 23, 2002. H.A.S. C. No 107-18. From Wikipedia: "Frank J. Gaffney, Jr. (born April 5, 1953) is the founder and president of the Center for Security Policy, columnist at The Washington Times, Big Peace, and Townhall, and radio host on Secure Freedom Radio.Gaffney began his public service career in the 1970s, working as an aide in the office of Democratic Senator Henry M. Jackson, under Richard Perle. From August 1983 until November 1987, Gaffney held the position of Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Nuclear Forces and Arms Control Policy in the Reagan Administration, again serving under Perle. In April 1987, Gaffney was nominated to the position of US Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Policy. He served as the acting Assistant Secretary for seven months, [3] though his confirmation was ultimately blocked by the United States Senate. In 1988, Gaffney established the Center for Security Policy (CSP), a conservative national security and defense policy organization. Gaffney appeared on FahrenHYPE 9/11, the conservative documentary that was intended as a rebuttal to Michael Moore's film Fahrenheit 9/11. [4] Gaffney was an executive producer for the documentary Islam vs. Islamists: Voices from the Muslim Center. The documentary was created to air as part of the America at a Crossroads series on PBS, but it has not been shown. PBS claimed that the film failed "to meet their standards, " but Gaffney called the decision "censorship."[5] He is a founding member of the Set America Free Coalition to reduce dependence on foreign oil and is part of the current iteration of the Committee on the Present Danger. [6] In November 1992, Gaffney's Center for Security Policy organization released a report detailing voter fraud in Angola's presidential election. Election officials stopped registering voters 40 days before the election. Polling stations had identical voting results. The MPLA retained a monopoly on television election-coverage. CSP also found widespread vote buying by the MPLA, the discarding of as many as 25% of cast ballots, and electricity blackouts during voter counting. United Nations special envoy Margaret Anstee said she "had never witnessed a more unfair election, even in Latin America."[7] Along with a number of figures who later assumed leading positions in the George W. Bush administration, Gaffney was one of 25 signatories[8] of the June 3, 1997 "Statement of Principles" from the Project for the New American Century, [9] an educational and political advocacy organization whose stated goal was "to promote American global leadership."[10] [edit] Dispute with Grover NorquistIn February 2003, Gaffney and David Horowitz criticized Grover Norquist, an anti-tax activist and prominent Republican strategist, for alleged ties to Abdurahman Alamoudi, Khaled Saffuri, and Sami al-Arian, all of whom had attempted to influence the Bush Administration. Gaffney said a press release by the American Muslim Council credited Ali Tulbah, a Bush-White House aide, for getting them access to the administration. Norquist banned Gaffney from the weekly "Wednesday Meeting" of the Leave Us Alone Coalition that Norquist hosted. Norquist later wrote an open letter, implying that Gaffney's account amounted to "racial prejudice, religious bigotry [and] ethnic hatred." In 2011, Gaffney accused Norquist of "helping the Muslim Brotherhood spread its influence" in the U.S. government. David Keene, President of the American Conservative Union, later commented on the Gaffney-Norquist dispute, saying, "I, for one, don't see it. If you read the transcript [of the panel], you can see if Frank was right or wrong, but there was nothing racist or bigoted about it." In a front-page story in The Wall Street Journal, Karl Rove dismissed Gaffney's assertions regarding Bush, stating "there's no there there."
