Recording of the debate
On the 7th anniversary of the terrorist attacks, Dr. Harvey Kushner and Mr. Scott Horton debated the following question: “Is the United States pursuing the correct strategy against international terrorism?” The War on Terrorism Debate was held the evening of Thursday, September 11, 2008 in Rudder Theater at Texas A&M University. With a crowd of over 150 the two debaters discussed and fought out the issues of the United State's response to terrorism and the War on Terrorism. Towards the end of the program, members of the audience were able to ask questions, spurring additional debate. Unfortunately, hurricane Ike was coming through the weekend of the debate and the University was officially closed the day after the event, sending most students home for the weekend before the debate; however, there was still a good turnout and a great internet turnout with over 56,000 online views.
As a conservative commentator and internationally recognized authority
on terrorism, Dr. Harvey Kushner has advised elected officials, military
personnel, and foreign government officials as well as trained many U.S.
governmental agencies. Kushner is recognized as one of the first
terrorism experts to have warned about a secret Islamic terror network
operating in the United States. In a 1991 law enforcement seminar
sponsored by the FBI, he described in eerie detail how Islamic
terrorists connected to a worldwide jihadist movement would soon attack
the home front. In a briefing to federal agents in 1998, he warned of
another attack on the World Trade Center.
