LOS ANGELES, July 31, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — The defeat of an NSA amendment offered a fledgling defense coalition an opportunity to showcase its stance on a pivotal intelligence issue. A trio of Bipartisan Coalition for American Security (BCAS) leaders spoke in equally supportive tones for the otherwise divisive outcome. Elliott Broidy, Chairman of the Advisory Board, advocated a grassroots approach that would build support from the bottom up to establish consensus on national defense issues. His sentiments were echoed by honorary co-chairmen Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) and Scott Brown (R-Mass.).
The House vote came on the heels of a speech from national security expert Elliott Broidy at a BCAS roundtable discussion onJuly 23rd. In opening remarks, he noted that modern outreach entailing vast online and digital efforts can establish a new voice in national defense. The changing demographics of American society in the midst of increasingly diverse threats from cyber and foreign sources were cited as challenges conducive to grassroots efforts. Elliott Broidy is also Chairman of Threat Deterrence LLC.
Senators Lieberman and Brown also stood unified in their approval for the vote outcome, with each noting that the result embodies the coalition’s principles of furthering national security prowess.
Senator Lieberman stated that national security agencies must have the ability to diffuse security threats before being realized. At the BCAS roundtable discussion on July 23rd, he emphasized that broad issues of secure borders and economic opportunities can have symbiotic effects on a diverse population.
Lieberman’s notions were confirmed by his colleague, Senator Scott Brown. Brown stated that protecting Americans from various threats often entails methods that may be deemed uncomfortable or intrusive, according to a news release on the BCAS website. He further mentioned that prudent oversight of national defense organizations should not impede the ability to thwart enemy agendas.
Aside from the intelligence issues stemming from the NSA vote, BCAS also aims to boost support for funding geopolitical diplomacy, defense systems and American economic interests around the world.
