Politics as Usual: Like it or not, the ACLU is protecting your rights

September 20, 2011

The 10th anniversary of 9/11 is a fitting time for poignant memorials and sympathetic reminiscences. It is also a time for flag-waving patriotism and “never again” steadfastness and vigilance. All those things have their place.
But it is also a fitting time for a clear-eyed look back to where we have come since that day and how we have gotten here, a sober reassessment of our behavior in response to that horror.
The Rhode Island ACLU has given us that with an excellent report titled “The Legacy of the Indefinite ‘War on Terror’ in Rhode Island: Civil Liberties in the Aftermath of 9/11.”
