What People are Saying About This

Jeffrey H. Smith

In fighting the war on terror we cannot abandon the legal and moral principles that have made us a great nation. Harvard's Phil Heymann and Juliette Kayyem who have direct experience in fighting terrorism have produced this extraordinarily thoughtful work containing many specific measures that would not only enhance our ability to fight terrorism but also preserve our essential liberties. It should be read by the President and Congress who should then move quickly to adopt as many of its suggestions as possible.
