The definitive account of how the architects of the War on Terror began a decade-long assault on the rule of law, permanently weakening our courts and our Constitution in the name of national security. The day after September 11, President Bush tasked Attorney General John Ashcroft with preventing another terrorist attack on the United States. Ashcroft took the mandate seriously; from that day forward, the Department of Justice would shift its resources and focus from the courts and prosecutions to the gathering of intelligence in order to protect the nation. Over the course of the next decade, aided by the DOJ, the Bush administration secretly gave its imprimatur to activities that had previously been unthinkable--from the NSA's wide-ranging collection of the telephone and Internet records of US citizens to indefinite detention at Guantanamo and even to torture. When President Obama came into office, many observers expected these changes to be rolled back and the resulting injustices remedied, but the new administration found the rogue policies to be deeply entrenched. Obama ramped up targeted killings, held fast to aggressive surveillance policies, and fell short on bringing reform to detention and interrogation. More recently, the steady efforts of the ACLU to restore the power of the Constitution, the revelations of Edward Snowden, and a subtle strategy by the Obama administration to bring power back to the courts and restore the rule of law, offer reason to hope. But the American justice system may never recover from the compromises made over the past fifteen years. Riveting and deeply reported, Rogue Justice could only have been written by Karen Greenberg, one of this country's top experts on Guantanamo, torture, and terrorism, with deep knowledge of the national security apparatus of both the Bush and Obama administrations. Now she brings to life the full story of law and order since 9/11, featuring a vast array of players--from ACLU lawyers to FBI investigators to judges in secret courts to accused terrorists. The picture she paints shows that time and again, when liberty and security were at odds, justice was the victim.

As a result of the work assembling the documents, memoranda, and reports that constitute the material in The Torture Papers the question of the rationale behind the Bush administration's decision to condone the use of coercive interrogation techniques in the interrogation of detainees suspected of terrorist connections was raised. The condoned use of torture in any society is questionable but its use by the United States, a liberal democracy that champions human rights and is a party to international conventions forbidding torture, has sparked an intense debate within America. The Torture Debate in America captures these arguments with essays from individuals in different discipines. This volume is divided into two sections with essays covering all sides of the argument from those who embrace absolute prohibition of torture to those who see it as a viable option in the war on terror and with documents complementing the essays.

In the aftermath of 9/11, in collusion with booming technological advancements, a new and more authoritarian form of governance is supplanting liberal democracy. The creation of the Security Industrial Complex an internal security state-within-the-state fueled by tech companies, private security firms, and the Intelligence Community to the tune of $120 billion a year is intruding on civil liberties to an extent never before seen in our history. Politicians tolerate it; the average citizen at times welcomes it, thinking it is the way to keep the America safe in a time of uncertainty and terrorism. But how real is the terrorist threat, and is it worth the loss of our individual privacy? As a society, the author maintains, we have yet to comprehend the meaning of universal digital connection, its impact on our psychology, and its transformation of our government and society. America is at a crossroads in contending with our overreaction to terrorism, allowing the beginnings of a police state, and the erosion of our country from a liberal democracy to a secure democracy one where government overreaches, tramples on civil liberties, and uses great advancements in technology to spy on the populace.
