The Committee on the Present Danger is a non-partisan organization with one goal – to stiffen American resolve to confront the challenge presented by terrorism and the ideologies that drive it.
The "danger" we face – which was "present" well before most Americans realized it on September 11, 2001 – is the determination of militant Islamists to impose their totalitarian views on, first, the Muslim world, and, then, the world at large.
The Committee on the Present Danger is pleased to launch Iran Update, a new e-mail publication that will focus on the dangers that Iran’s radical regime present to the security of the West in general, and the United States in particular. Sign up here.
