More fear than harm. Human Rights, Civil Liberties will prevail. No administration can be allowed or should be allowed to curtail civil liberties, due process in criminal cases. The anti-terrorism regulations and amendment to laws serve as tools to facilitate data mining, undercover surveillance that will help thwart future enemy plans by tracking their movements. The sad fact is that since enemy combatants operate within our society, in this country, laws that protect citizens and resident aliens make it too easy for them to run their operation.
Laws must change to face this reality. Checks and Balances within the constraints of classified info due to national security issues should be an intrinsic part of any bill. It ought to be foolproof so that whichever party is in power cannot misuse it in order to stifle opposition.
