"Have human rights as we once understood them become obsolete in the wake of 9/11? Aren't new methods needed to combat the apocalyptic violence of Al Qaeda? Shouldn't some rights be sacrificed to make us all safer? And if we can kill combatants in battle, why shouldn't we torture them if it saves lives?" "William Schulz's provocative new book examines these and other fundamental questions through the prism of our new consciousness about terrorism. He challenges much of the logic of the Bush Administration's "War on Terror, " which has prioritized security at the expense of human rights, arguing that a disregard for human rights has damaged the United States both at home and abroad."--BOOK JACKET.
