Known Muslim Brotherhood front groups such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the Muslim American Society have portrayed themselves as the true “gate-keepers” to the American Muslim community in the United States. Their perversion of the American political system misguide gullible government officials who believe that pleasing these organizations will satisfy the overall American Muslim population. However, according to a recent poll, only one-fourth of the American Muslim population feels like one of these groups represent them ideologically. Founder and Chief Editor of Worldthreats.com, Ryan Mauro joins Secure Freedom Radio to challenge the general wisdom that Americans hold that only foreign-born Muslims can become indoctrinated with extremist ideals. He suggests that it is the American-born Muslims who want the separation between church and state minimized and not necessarily foreign-born Muslims. Additionally, he examines how Syrian opposition activists feel that the US is outsourcing power to Turkey.

Chris Isham, Director of Plans and Policy J5 at the Joint Interagency Task Force West of US Central Command explores the mission of JIATF-West in combating drug trafficking schemes in the Asia-Pacific theater. JIATF-West coordinates with Southern Command and government law enforcement to disrupt transnational shipments of narcotics. By reducing drug crime in the region, the Task Force has successfully disrupted 96 metric tons of meth and the flow of other pre-cursor chemical flows in the Asia-Pacific region. Furthermore, the Task Force’s main objective is to stop the transnational crime organizations, not just the drugs being transported.

Today on Frank Gaffney's Secure Freedom Radio, Frank has a special visit from Senator Joseph Lieberman of Connecticut to give us an inside look into his new book, The Gift of Rest: Rediscovering the Beauty of the Sabbath. In his book, he describes a typical Sabbath day in the Lieberman household where they observe common Jewish traditions. Senator Lieberman wrote the book particularly for Christians who hope that in their busy lives, they can find a reason to put aside everything and spend time with their family. “There is growth in rest,” says Lieberman. At the end of each chapter, there is a small section entitled “Simple Beginnings,” where he outlines ways in which people who want to begin observing the Sabbath can do so; step by step. Lastly, Sen. Lieberman gives us his take on the end of the Qaddafi regime and how the “boots on the ground” opposition will help bring about his fall.

Regular guest here on Secure Freedom Radio and Contributing Editor for National Review Online, Andy McCarthy touches on his suspicion that the Libyan rebels are not necessarily friends of the United States, as well as how Libya sent more jihadists to Iraq than any other country. He also hopes that when the rebels draft a Constitution, Shariah will not be established as the law of Libya.
