Foreword

The mandate of the American Muslim Task Force (AMTF) is to provide preliminary analysis and a foundation for a continued discourse regarding the short- and long-term implications of the 9/11 Commission Report. This publication should serve as a resource for further dialogue and analysis.

As an integral part of the fabric of this society, American Muslims must be fully engaged in all discourse that impacts our nation. Our unique position as Muslims in America necessitates our having an inde - pendent voice in matters pertaining to civil rights and liberties, national security and the well being of the country. As responsible citizens, modeling the complementary nature of both Islamic and American values, we need to ensure that our response is balanced, relevant and nonreactionary. The contributions in this publication are meant to facilitate public discourse. By issuing these initial responses, we hope to offer a tool that will increase our political acumen and enhance further in-depth analysis of key recommendations offered by the Report. The Reference Section and appendices provide vital information on various publications, think tank reports, websites, books and other sources that inform the 9/11 Commission Report.

We would like to acknowledge our contributors for their insightful analysis and recommendations, Amir Al Islam for his contribution and support, Dr. James Jones for his critique and guidance, Rahla Khan for her critical eye in the editing process, and CCMO for sponsoring this endeavor. Without their help and support, this project would not have come to fruition. The views, opinions, findings and conclusions or recommenda - tions expressed herein belong to the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of AMTF or the sponsors of this project.
