Leaders with Ginni Thomas: Dr. Sebastian Gorka, national security expert

Dr. Sebastian Gorka is a national security expert who trains special forces soldiers on counterterrorism and intelligence.

Gorka, who recently became a U.S. citizen, was born in Britain to parents who escaped Communism in Hungary. A military affairs fellow at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, Gorka teaches at the National Defense University and gives national security lectures in the United States and internationally. He also has testified before Congress on national security matters and regularly appears in the media to discuss foreign policy and emerging threats to U.S. security.

The Daily Caller’s Ginni Thomas recently spoke with Gorka about President Obama’s muddled foreign policy choices, the threat political correctness poses to our national security, the threats to our constitutional order from forces both outside and inside our borders, myths of conventional thinking on national security matters and much more.
