Gerry Goldstein Speaks About Civil Liberties One Year After September 11 Attacks

As reported by the San Antonio Current in their September 5-7, 2001, issue, civil rights attorney Gerry Goldstein testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee and said Americans began losing some of the civil liberties after the September 11 terrorist attacks.

Goldstein testified before committee as a legal representative of Dr. Al-Badr Al-Hazmi, a San Antonio radiologist from Saudi Arabia who the FBI detained after the attacks. The FBI raided his home, took him into custody, leaving Goldstein to question how the authorities could legally do so. He spoke with reporter Tucker Teutsch III about how civil liberties have changed and how the lives of American people likely will be different in the future as the government changes its national security policies.
