2006: National Security book "How to Make America Safe"

In 2006, the National Security working group published How to Make America Safe (The Tobin Project), a compilation of scholars' papers on the topic. The papers advocate a broad strategy that combats terrorism on all fronts - not only on the battlefield - and that directs our resources toward the unique threats of the post-9/11 era. Such a strategy would, at a minimum, accomplish five key objectives:

  • Prevent terrorists from acquiring nuclear weapons
  • Arrive at an endgame in Iraq
  • Spread democracy and win the war of ideas
  • Finance and fight a broader war on terror
  • Manage the rise of great powers

The book was distributed on Capitol Hill, along with the Tobin Project’s first policy brief on Iraq and the War on Terror.
