Dean On Civil Liberties

What indignation (and perhaps rightly so) The Patriot Act has stirred in Liberal circles! Looks like American Leftist Hero Doctor Dean had the same reaction to the events of 11 September 2001. His hindsight is uberProgressive 20/20 now though <rolling eyes/>

Dateline : Montpelier, September 14, 2001

Dean said Wednesday he believed that the attacks and their aftermath would “require a re-evaluation of the importance of some of our specific civil liberties. I think there are going to be debates about what can be said where, what can be printed where, what kind of freedom of movement people have and whether it's OK for a policeman to ask for your ID just because you're walking down the street.”
