The Center for American Progress Action Fund, The Center for American Progress’ sister organization, released a report today detailing a progressive strategy for increasing American national security and decreasing the threat of terrorism.

Taking Control of the Fight Against Terrorists: A Progressive Strategy to Protect Americans argues that the United States can take back control of national security with a comprehensive strategy that integrates all components of American power.

It argues that America must:

  • Change the course in Iraq and complete the military mission at a time of our choosing
  • Restore U.S. military readiness
  • Go on the offensive against the real enemy in the right way
  • Secure nuclear materials and facilities vulnerable to terrorist groups
  • Bring terrorists to justice
  • Win the battle of ideas
  • Resolve conflicts that fuel terrorist groups
  • Support realistic political reform and economic development
  • Protect Americans at home
  • Reduce America’s dependence on foreign oil
