Norman Podhoretz was interviewed about his book, World War IV: The Long Struggle Against Islamofascism, published by Doubleday. In his book he argues that the “war against Islamofascism” currently being waged by the Bush administration is as important for our country to engage in as World War I, World War II, and the Cold War. He defended the Bush administration’s dual policies of preemption and democratization and said that past presidents of both parties have failed to recognize the importance of going on the offensive in the battle against Islamic extremism. The guest interviewer was Charles Pena.
Charles Pena also is a senior fellow with the Coalition for a Realistic Foreign Policy, senior fellow with the George Washington University Homeland Security Policy Institute, and an adviser on the Straus Military Reform Project. He is the author of Winning the Un-War: A New Strategy for the War on Terrorism.
Norman Podhoretz also is a fellow at the Hudson Institute. His books include Making It, Ex-Friends, and My Love Affair with America. close
