Iraqi Insurgents in Najaf
Iraqi insurgents in Najaf armed assault rifles. Militants continue their attacks on Iraq's 4,000 miles of oil pipeline, costing the troubled nation an estimated $10 billion to date. If such attacks were launched against the 10,000 miles of Saudi Arabian pipelines, it would dramatically disrupt the world's economy. Photo courtesy of Australian Broadcast Corporation.

Joining Forces Against the 'Perfect Storm'

The purpose of the conference was to announce the Natural Resources Defense Council's participation in an initiative by national security policy "Hawks" that calls on Congress to provide national leadership in reducing the nation's demand for oil by unleashing technology and innovation in the auto sector.

The security groups' plan, "Set America Free" , cites a "perfect storm" of geopolitical, economic, and environmental problems with continued high U.S. oil consumption, and recommends rapid development of hybrids and other available technologies, new fuels, and cars that can use them.? The groups will put pressure on Congress to turn the plan into legislation.

Plan sponsors include the Institute for the Analysis of Global Security (IAGS), Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD), Center for Security Policy (CSP), Hudson Institute, National Defense Council Foundation (NDCF), and the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE,), including prominent security experts Frank Gaffney, President, CSP and former Assistant Secretary of Defense, Robert C. McFarlane, former National Security Advisor, and James Woolsey, former director, Central Intelligence Agency, and co-chairman of the Committee on the Present Danger.

Featured in this 30-minute MP3 audio are Milton Copulos, President, National Defense Council Foundation, Frank Gaffney, President, Center for Security Policy, (former Assistant Secretary of Defense under Reagan), and Anne Korin, Policy Director, Institute for the Analysis of Global Security.
