Reader comment on item: Maher Hawash: The Terrorist Next Door

Submitted by John R. Peacher (United States), Aug 25, 2003 at 23:30

I am fearful that it is going to take another terrorist incident the likes of 9-11 to silence those complaining of citizens concerned that terrorists or sympathizers are in our midst. I am also afraid that federal agencies may obtain too much power and that we may lose some of our freedoms. What is the trade off? Only time, and either peace or more terror will tell on this issue. At what price, freedom?
