CFNS fills a vital need. With its people, contacts and experiences in the intelligence and national security arenas, and its concept of two-way dialogue with its members, it offers an efficient forum and format that bring the general public into the national security mix.

Concerned citizens interested in education on extremism, terrorism and weapons of mass destruction have before them a seemingly wide array of sources via the Internet. Unfortunately, access to this virtually inexhaustible fountain of information often provides them with an understanding that is highly distorted and, many times, completely incorrect. This problem stems from the unfiltered and opinion-oriented nature of much of the data posted in cyberspace. It is compounded by the huge number of so-called "9/12" terrorism "gurus" who appeared after 9/11. These self-proclaimed experts are largely gadflies who saw a quick path to financial enrichment, or who were trying to create for themselves a reputation in a new growth industry.

In stark contrast, CFNS's organizers and advisors are academic, scientific, intelligence, counter terrorism and defense experts who were involved in their respective fields decades before the 9/11 attacks on America. Their expertise ranges from the entire chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosives (CBRNE) spectrum - to counterterrorism from intelligence, military, legal (criminal & civil), historical, tactical and policy perspectives - to issues of extremism within K-12 schools, colleges and universities. They are long-term practitioners in their specialties who have conducted training for over 10,000 law enforcement, military and analytical personnel at local, state, federal and corporate levels, and for the private sector, nationwide. Recognized as experts in their fields, CFNS's leaders have testified before congressional committees and regularly appear on national media. They are extensively quoted in the press and have published widely.

The expert-based, nonpartisan and objective information provided to all CFNS members represents an enormous value-added to their understanding of the strategic and tactical threats currently confronting our nation. For those who choose to become proactive, it undoubtedly enhances the role they may play in ensuring our long-term survival, our collective culture, and the inheritance we pass along to those who follow us.
