Al Qaeda, the Taliban, terrorist organizations, and lone wolf terrorists continue to wage war against the United States. As we approach the 10-year anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks against our country, it is important to evaluate the counterterrorism policies passed and amended by Congress over the last decade. Key provisions of the PATRIOT Act and the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 are set to expire at the end of May 2011. Those provisions enable counterterrorism professionals to gather evidence against and/or monitor suspected terrorists. What are these tools, and how do they work? Do we still need them, and why? Do these tools adequately protect civil liberties? Join us as former Attorney General Michael Mukasey shares his views on the continuing threat of terrorism, and the policies we need to keep America safe.
