“One of the major features of the so-called war on terror was been a major campaign to reduce civil liberties in the United States to increase the power of the government over the individual.”

Hussein Ibish, spokesperson for the Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, reflects on how civil liberties have been affected by the “war on terror” at a teach-in for the United for Peace and Justice in Washington D.C.
