 Des Moines, IA— On Saturday May 16th, The Center for Security Policy, in partnership with THE FAMILY LEADER Foundation and High Frontier, hosted The Iowa National Security Action Summit. The conference featured many of the most influential national security practitioners of our day addressing the current state of U.S. foreign and defense policy in an increasingly perilous world. Specifically, the event covered four key topics of interest to both our nation and the state of Iowa:

  • Border Insecurity and Illegal Immigration
  • America’s Electrical Power Grid and Threats to Critical Infrastructure
  • The Hollowing Out of The U.S. Military
  • The Threat from Iran, Shariah and The Global Jihad Movement

The following noteworthy policy experts and national leaders addressed a packed room at the Point of Grace Church in Waukee, IA, just outside of Des Moines:
