As the world pauses to memorialize the ninth anniversary of 9/11 Saturday, former Speaker Newt Gingrich and his wife, Calista, are hoping many will also take time to reflect on the ensuing American response to the threat of radical Islamists and the effectiveness of America's global War on Terror. Gingrich Productions -- the Gingrichs' joint filmmaking venture -- has teamed up with Citizens United to produce "America at Risk," a DVD documentary debuting tomorrow that examines national security concerns and the steps necessary to ensure America's safety.
In "America at Risk," the Gingrichs interview several experts in national security, the Middle East and terrorism policy who weigh in with their own thorough assessments of the country's current security strategies--from Iran and North Korea, to the threat of Islamic extremists. Among them, former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, former UN Ambassador John Bolton, former CIA Director R. James Woolsey, Tony Blankley, Steven Emerson, Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, Frank Gaffney, Reihan Salam and others.
Here's the trailer:
"Today, Washington refuses to tell the truth about the war we are fighting. According to experts, we are at war with radical Islamists - and it is a war we are losing," the film's website states. "We are long overdue for a serious global strategy in fighting terrorism and the ideology behind it. We must have the courage to tell the truth and to act on that truth. It's time to be honest about what we know."
