Security and Civil Liberties

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

September 11, 2006, will mark the fifth anniversary of a very tragic day in American history. During the past five years, the federal government has taken numerous measures intended to prevent a repeat of those horrible terrorist attacks. The Heritage Foundation intends to grade the government on its progress in protecting American citizens by issuing a National Security Report Card in September. Throughout the course of the year, we will host a series of events designed to provide input for the final report card. Our first discussion will address how well the Senate, House, and Administration have done at balancing security and civil liberties. Join us as we examine this critical issue.
