Clare Lopez

Clare Lopez is the vice president for research and analysis with the Center for Security Policy.

A former CIA employee, Lopez now regularly engages in broadbrush attacks against the entire Islamic faith.

Her words:

  • In 2013, Lopez told an audience, “When people in other bona fide religions follow their doctrines they become better people — Buddhists, Hindus, Christians, Jews. When Muslims follow their doctrine, they become jihadists.”
  • Lopez said President George W. Bush was “obviously confused and mistaken” when he referred to Islam as a religion of peace in the aftermath of the 9/11 terror attacks.
  • She has also stated that “ISIS is the purest expression of Islamic doctrine, law and scripture” and believes an attack on Christianity is the ultimate expression of Islam.
