Last Saturday marked the eightieth anniversary of the recognition of the Soviet Union by the United States. In recognition of the occasion, on Friday November 15 the Center for Security Policy sponsored a panel discussion, “The Legacy of FDR’s Normalization of Relations with the USSR”, about the events of November 16, 1933, their ramifications during World War Two and the Cold War, and their lingering effects today.
After Diana West, M. Stanton Evans, and Chris Farrell spoke about Soviet infiltration and agents of influence, Maj. Stephen Coughlin described the current campaign by the Muslim Brotherhood to subvert the government and institutions of the United States as part of a “civilization jihad”. The Ikhwan has been phenomenally successful in its efforts — arguably beyond the wildest dreams of the Soviets during World War Two and the height of the Cold War.
Below is Frank Gaffney’s introduction, followed by Steve Coughlin’s presentation. Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for uploading this video:
The entire video (1 hour 52 minutes) is well worth watching.
