Survey on Civil Liberties
A survey by National Public Radio, Kaiser Family Foundation, and Harvard University s Kennedy School of Government shows that the vast majority of Americans are willing to forgo some civil liberties to fight terrorism and that they trust the government to do the right thing in carrying out the fight. However, Americans also hold strong beliefs in principle about civil liberties, and public attitudes may change if the threat of terrorism recedes.
