Making Contact

Making Contact – December 8, 2006

Since the passing of the Patriot Act, many things have changed in the U.S.,
and not necessarily for the better.

On this edition, we look at Bush Administration policies that many contend
undermine basic human rights and civil liberties. Has the War on Terror
become a War on Freedom? How much should we give up for this war?
