Fareed ZakariaAckerman proposes an emergency constitution that would take effect after a major terrorist attack and would include some of the restrictions of the Bush administration's approach. But it would also expire periodically and could be renewed only by ever-increasing Congressional majorities. Additionally, courts would be able to review any revisions. Ackerman's solution may or may not be practical, but at least he confronts the problem intelligently, and he is surely correct to say that it's not a good idea to respond to particular crises with ad hoc changes to our laws.
