    Events of Interest: First Amendment Center Discussion ‘Liberty in Terrorist Times’ (Oct. 14)

    The First Amendment Center is holding an event entitled “Liberty in Terrorist Times” on the book The Constitution and 9/11: Recurring Threats to America’s Freedoms (2008).

    How has 9/11 affected our constitutional culture and its values? How have it affected our civil liberties, including our First Amendment freedoms? In times of such crisis, how effective has our system of checks and balances actually been? How much information can be kept secret before the ideal of “open government” vanishes? Following 9/11, how are the government’s needs for surveillance to be balanced against the protection of our citizenry’s rights? What constitutional limits does the Constitution impose on the powers of a war-time Executive? And what does our own history tell us about such questions?

      Unfortunately, it looks like the First Amendment Center doesn’t keep archived information on its events. It’s too bad, since not everyone can attend even though they want to hear the discussions.
