Abstract:

Some Americans view the PATRIOT Act as justified for giving law enforcement officials the necessary tools to fight the war on terror. Others see the PATRIOT Act as misguided power that is destroying our civil liberties. Since the inception of the PATRIOT Act most of the ordinary American people have not fully understood its role in the fight against terrorism. The original bill was introduced soon after the September 11 attacks on the United States. Since this time it has been criticized, reviewed and changed to represent the protection of the American peoples civil liberties. Some organizations think that many of the provisions in the Act still fringe upon the basic civil liberties. This paper will dispel these myths with the truth in government reality.
