Protecting Citizens and Civil Liberties

(View PowerPoint Presentation)

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

After the September 11, 2001 terror attacks, the world changed, but the United States Constitution did not. Protecting Americans requires stopping the terrorists while we preserve the freedoms and liberties of our citizens. Are we getting both jobs done?

The Heritage Foundation has invited Ms. Alice Fisher to address these issues and the progress being made with the investigation and prosecution of international and domestic terrorist groups.

From July 2001 until October 2003, Ms. Fisher was Deputy Assistant Attorney General of the Criminal Division in the U.S. Department of Justice. She was responsible for national coordination in the terrorism area, including all matters relating to September 11 investigations and prosecutions, investigation and prosecution of international and domestic terrorist groups and terrorist acts, terrorist financing investigations, USA Patriot Act implementation, and all other terrorism policy issues.
