Fighting Terrorism Without Losing Liberty

photoThe United States' efforts to combat terrorism both at home and abroad have brought the country into uncharted legal waters. The war on terror has fueled a tension between the push towards greater national security and the need to safeguard the civil liberties that America is based on.

Harvard University's Long-Term Legal Strategy Project for Preserving Security and Democratic Freedoms in the War on Terrorism has just released a report that offers a path to achieving security without sacrificing freedom.

Tune in to hear about the report's findings and whether the war on terror can safeguard both America's security and its civil liberties.
