Balancing Liberty and Security

May 16, 2010 to May 22, 2010

Viet Dinh, chief architect of the Patriot Act when he served as Assistant Attorney General for Legal Policy from 2001-2003 and currently Professor of Law and co-director of Asian Law and Policy Studies at the Georgetown University Law Center.

 

It's always been a tricky calculation. How much freedom is too much, when considering issues of safety and security? In the aftermath of 9/11, the search for the correct formulation between civil liberties and law enforcement took on new urgency, and resulted in passage of the U.S. Patriot Act. In this episode, host John Milewski explores this delicate balance with Viet Dinh, chief architect of the Patriot Act when he served as Assistant Attorney General for Legal Policy from 2001-2003 and currently Professor of Law and co-director of Asian Law and Policy Studies at the Georgetown University Law Center.
