TAMPA - The U.S. government has a habit of creating laws that strip foreign nationals of their freedoms then expanding them to take away rights of American citizens, a Georgetown University Law Center professor said Thursday.
David Cole delivered the keynote speech at the University of South Florida for a discussion titled "Executive Power in the War on Terror: Are There Any Limits?"
A Tampa FBI agent and the national director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations were among panelists who offered their views. The American Civil Liberties Union and CAIR organized the event.
