Mission Statement

To bring to one venue, for incisive analysis and understanding, the many threads and opinions surrounding the threat and interdiction of terrorism. This blog will be published as often as necessary to provide its readers with the most recent information and commentary on events worldwide and to publish articles on relevant issues and policy concerns by members of the Center and those experts who wish to submit their articles for consideration.

It is the intention of CSCT to promote the understanding of security issues created by terrorism and their impact on individual civil rights. In addition to recognizing the delicate balance that necessitates law enforcement’s unannounced invasive intrusion in the lives of individuals, and to provide the mechanism to protect the civil rights of all persons and institutions. Two axioms must remain constant; the voice that leads the discussion must be neutral and non-partisan at all times, and second, the “slippery slope” argument can no longer play any role in the discussion of the issues.
