The Patriot Act (the full name is the USA Patriot Act, or "Uniting and Strengthening America Act by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001") was signed on October 26 by the former U.S. President George W.

For example in war society accepts killing for self-defense. Nations tend to get involved when there is an oppressing government in other countries. There involvement allows humanity to sin against, “authorities who tried to muzzle new thoughts and to the authority of long-established opinions which declared a change to be nonsense” (Fromm, Erich). Fromm believes that the definition of sin has changed in society when it is meant to a certain extent have a beneficial outcome.

The 90’s saw an unprecedented number of natural disasters that would put FEMA’s resolve to the test. West coast earthquakes and mid-west floods are incidents that defined FEMA between 1992 and 1995. In 1993, America witnessed the first bombing of The World Trade Center. Then, in 1995, America was witness to home grown terrorism (the Oklahoma City Bombing), which would lead to the reintroduction of the fundamentals that was the framework of FEMA in the 1980’s, national security. The Nunn-Lugar legislation of 1995 revisited the question of who would be the lead agency in regards to acts of terrorism.
This speech is remarkable because it influenced many people. It is highly regarded today because it announced a war upon Iraq.Throughout the course of this speech analysis, we will cover the emotional, logical, and ethical appeals that are in President Bush’s speech. First off, emotional appeal is a method of persuasion used to get an emotional response. There are several occasions where President Bush uses emotional appeal in this speech. For example, he announced that “Saddam Hussein systematically raped, pillaged, and plundered a tiny nation, no threat to his own.” This tiny nation is known as Kuwait.
For many years, the US Government has used basic interrogation techniques in order to force information out of prisoners and terrorists. However, after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, the US Government initiated what they called “Enhanced Interrogation”. They initiated this process with the goal in mind to get more information out of terrorists or potential terrorists for the prevention of future attacks. No matter how controversial the methods, the CIA’s new methods may have good intentions, but proved ineffective when it mattered most. One method of interrogation used that most people are familiar with is a technique called “waterboarding”.

The narrator explains that because of the Patriot Act, “the photos had made the rounds through several branches of government, and ultimately, to the US Army itself.” As a result, the military is planning an all-out assault on Iraq. Helped by GOB’s brotherly abuse, Buster finally finishes boot camp and is immediately set for deployment as the WDM frenzy continues. At Michael’s next meeting with Wayne Jarvis, he is again presented by the immunity ultimatum along with the actual photographic evidence taken from the Bluth computer system. Barry Zuckerkorn, Michael’s attorney sees the pictures and immediately exclaims, “Those are balls,” and further clarifies that “This close, they always look like landscape.” A flashback after Zuckerkorn’s revelation shows Tobias Fünke struggling to understand his new picture phone in the bathtub, creating dramatic irony for the audience. The narrator again brings the Patriot Act into the episode by stating “for the second time in two days, the information network put into place by the Patriot Act was put to use.” Soon after, the show cuts to a scene with two fighter jets pulling off their attack after being notified about the “ball” evidence.
A week after the Septeber 11 attacks, the Bush administration proposed to the United States Congress the Anti-Terrorism Act of 2001, introducing radical changes to combat money laundering that finance terrorist groups, give authority to agencies like FBI to gather domestic intelligence on potential terrorists and construct stricter judicial procedures for deporting suspected terrorists. The most important act passed by the US government was The PATRIOT Act, passed in October 2001, which gained strong support in both chambers.

Clearly, had the CIA and FBI shared information with each other, connected the dots on known terrorist members, and subsequently gave that information to local law enforcement the attacks of September 11, 2001 may have been preventable. I am most certain that the families of the 2,752 people that died on that day would love nothing more than to see increase communication between federal agencies and local law enforcement. Fortunately, the results and recommendations of the 9/11 commission report may tremendous improvements in the communication for these law enforcement professionals (The 9/11 Commission Report, 2002). Some of those improvements included adding additional analysts to sort through the enormous amounts of intelligence, and reducing communication barriers between local and federal law enforcement agencies (The 9/11 Commission Report, 2002). Another area of opportunity included revamping the technology of communication via police radios.
On September 11th, nineteen terrorists of Saudi Arabian decent hijacked three planes and sent them on a path to the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. According to Reza Pankhurst, author of “A Legacy of 9/11: A Decade of Denial and Destruction,” Pankhurst stated that the reason for the attack was that the American government supported underrepresented regimes, extradition, and foreign intervention in the Middle East for its own political and economical gain (738). These actions led to a growing disfavor for the American government in the Middle East. In their opinion, United States had angered far too many Middle Eastern countries, and these citizens wished to exact revenge by “dispensing” the treatment they experienced to the American populace (739). According to “9/11 Attack,” this response manifested as the attacks on World Trade Center on September 11th, where approximately three thousand and four hundred people lost their lives.
As a former United States Army soldier I would have to say no, I believe that emotions and feelings ran high throughout the United States, so this gave our government away to invade the country of Iraq by implementing and tying them into terrorist activities which led up to September 11th. Just recently President Obama shut down operations in Iraq, however while shutting down operations based on public opinion he suspended then change the operational capacity within the country, this led to a new threat to the country 's region and the declining the stabilization of this country. Now we are back to square one president "Obama has urged Congress to authorize military action against terrorist who are actively cutting a swath across the Middle East," I do not believe that the use of force is necessary unless we know all of the facts,
