Foreword

The mandate of the American Muslim Task Force (AMTF) is to providepreliminary analysis and a foundation for a continued discourse regardingthe short- and long-term implications of the 9/11 CommissionReport. This publication should serve as a resource for further dialogueand analysis.

As an integral part of the fabric of this society, American Muslimsmust be fully engaged in all discourse that impacts our nation. Ourunique position as Muslims in America necessitates our having an inde -pendent voice in matters pertaining to civil rights and liberties, nationalsecurity 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 publicdiscourse. By issuing these initial responses, we hope to offer a tool thatwill increase our political acumen and enhance further in-depth analysisof key recommendations offered by the Report. The Reference Sectionand appendices provide vital information on various publications, thinktank reports, websites, books and other sources that inform the 9/11Commission Report.
