The Patriot Act Under Fire [electronic resource]

ABC News Productions
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
To many, worrying about constitutional rights seemed like an archaic luxury while Ground Zero was still smoking. The need for tighter homeland security made civil liberties take a back seat to urgent measures such as the USA PATRIOT Act designed to defend America from terrorists. But two years later, that piece of legislation came under fire from both the left and the right. In this ABC News program, Ted Koppel takes a hard look at the law with representatives of the U.S. Department of Justice, the ACLU, and others.
