ABA: Reject False Choice Between Liberty and Security

The ABA hit the key issue in their protest of George Bush’s violation of the law:

The president of the nation’s largest lawyers group said Friday that President Bush should comply with federal law when conducting electronic surveillance of Americans and refrain from scaring people into giving up their civil liberties in the fight against terrorism.

“Times of conflict have often put stress on America’s liberties. It’s a time when we get frightened and are tempted to take shortcuts with the Constitution,” American Bar Association President Michael Greco said. “But I personally reject the false choice that is being offered Americans that they must give up their liberties to have security.”
