Dr. Sebastian Gorka’s family of origin knows all about oppression and persecution, having fled the Soviets during the 1956 Revolution in Hungary.
Educated in the UK, Sebastian eventually settled in the United States. Through his Congressional testimony, his work as a professor with expertise in irregular warfare, and his new book Defeating Jihad: The Winnable War, he says America (and the west) since 9/11 has become very good at applying direct military force against terrorists and their camps, but has failed so far to confront the ideology behind ISIS and other Islamic radical groups. Drone strikes and special ops raids can be highly effective as far as they go, but they don’t win the hearts and minds of non-radicalized Muslims, not to mention the further radicalization of onlookers.
In January, 2017, Dr. Gorka was named Special Deputy to the President of the United States. Don’t miss this riveting conversation about a topic few want to address, but which becomes more and more important as we go forward.
