This is episode 6 in a series of at least ten shows devoted to the impact on civil liberties of laws passed since 9/11/2001 to enhance national security. During this series, Attorney Donna M. Adler leads us chronologically from the events of September 11th and the 9/11 Commission Report through several major pieces of legislation, such as the Homeland Security Act, the Patriot Act, Patriot II, the Military Commissions Act, and a number of laws directed to enhancing that national capacity to fight terrorism. Today we continue discussing:(a) what the U.S. knew about Al Qaeda as it was becoming prominent and what we tried to do about it; (b) failures of intergovernmental cooperation concerning the knowledge we had that contributed to our vulnerability on 9/11; (c) the recommendations that the 9/11 Commission made in light of the Commission’s findings; and a discussion of legislation.
