Some believed it to be true, while others believed that it was just a way to make the government look bad. After learning more about what happened on 9/11, I too believe the theory to be true. Not only did inside traders know about the attacks before it would happen, but Air Defense was told not to help during the hijacking. Some witnesses also claim to have heard explosions inside the World Trade Center, indicating that bombs made the building collapse and not the planes. This day known as September 11, 2001 will forever be remembered and recognized in America’s
One argument made by Senator Robert M. La Follette was “I think all men recognize that in time of war the citizen must surrender some rights for the common good which he is entitled to enjoy in time of peace. But, sir, the right to control their own Government according to constitutional forms is not one of the rights that the citizens of this country are called upon to surrender in time of war.” He does not agree with taking away the right of free speech. There was a cartoon drawn that states “Swat the Fly but Use Common Sense.” This cartoon shows that we wanted to win the war, but we should not take away the important rights of the citizens. There was a Japanese citizen of the United States named Korematsu. He was born in the United States, but his parents were born in Japan.
To begin, government surveillance invades citizen’s privacy and breaks the fourth and first Amendment right that they naturally have. The fourth amendment states that a person has the right to be protected from unreasonable searches and seizures while the first amendment exercises freedom of speech and religion (United States Constitution). Government surveillance breaks the fourth amendment by searching people’s internet files and databases without a reason; the first amendment is also broken because people no longer have freedom of speech if the NSA is spying on them and what they say is being monitored. The NSA has been spying on citizens for quite some time now to find out what they have been saying or doing. Charlie Savage, an author and newspaper reporter, states in his article
If you are tortured by the CIA and you try to go to court for it, you will lose unless you have video evidence of it. So that is why it is completely undetectable by any type of modern technology. Also, most other countries do not know that the CIA tortures because it is invisible on the body. Like when El Chapo was held by the CIA and he escaped he was tortured but nobody ever could tell because yet again, it’s invisible. Since the CIA uses water for the torture and water is clear it’s invisible.
That moving that amount of people was unjustified and this is coming from a man who had wiretaps placed everywhere to try and get information that proves someone is a danger. He went so far to protect the USA he built a secret network that operated in the US during his time as head
As illustrated, U.S. citizens should be granted the ability to protest wars and drafts since it violates the first Amendment’s right to free speech. The Supreme Court made an invalid choice. In another sense, the fact that Charles Schenck was not initiating any violence during his protest indicates why citizens should be required to protest
Until they heard about the burglary. It occured at the Democratic National Committee (DNC) building located in the Watergate complex in Washington, D.C. The burglars did not steal something small like computers but instead they stole numerous documents consisted of DNC classified information about the Committees plans for electing our next president. The burglars also wiretapped the phones so they could hear in on every conversation that occured. These burglars were not terrorists trying to get information on the U.S but they were from their own country and citizens soon found the culprits were working for President Richard Nixon's reelection campaign.
According to Richards (2013), it is illegitimate and pernicious to establish an underground and comprehensive surveillance in the society. First, individual privacy, which should be granted and well protected by the law, is now violated. Under PRISM, personal details, including thoughts, movements, communication, transaction and health record, is being systemically and consistently collected without a permit from the owners. The right to hold these details is shifted from the individuals to the state. The state then can make use of the information for certain political purposes like filtering criminal/ terrorist-related suspects out of the government or even country.
The next reason is the Apple and FBI disputes. Disputes go on due to the terror attack by the FBI forcing apple to unlock phones. The FBI is going to far when doing this, Apple makes phones secure and safe. The FBI should not be able to unlock somebody's Iphone this may cause problems just like it did in the terror attack killing 14 people. Last and final reason is the US vs Jones.
The founders of our land of the free implemented a measure to prevent dictatorships such as these that strip people of their individualism. This is our sacred Constitution, which has provisions relating to the right of privacy. Amendment IV of the Bill of Rights states that, â€œThe right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable causeâ€ (The Rights of Privacy screen 1). In other words, the government only has the right to search oneâ€™s property upon maintaining of an official warrant issued for probable cause. This being said, our founding fathers did not anticipate the internet and the
