U.S. Rising: Emerging Voices in Post-9/11 America opens on Thursday, Sept. 8, with a panel discussion on how the bounds of law have been stretched in the name of national security. This first panel discussion, entitled “The New Legal Landscape,” will feature an attorney from the American Civil Liberties Union and University of Michigan Professor Juan Cole.

In this segment of the Craig Fahle Show, Craig talks with Professor Cole about what has become legal and illegal since the Patriot Act was introduced, as a kind of preview to Thursday's discussion. That panel will start at 9:30a.m. and last until 11am in the Bernath Auditorium, at the Wayne State University Undergraduate Library in Detroit.
