Past Event

The War on Terrorism

A Road Scholar Program by Peter Wenz

Although there is no controversy about the need for Americans to protect themselves against terrorists and would be terrorists, there is controversy about the means used. Peter Wenz will examine three controversial means: the indefinite detention of "enemy combatants" who are given no opportunity to prove their innocence; the "enhanced interrogation" of possible terrorists to gain information that may be needed to forestall future attacks on America and on Americans; and the use of racial profiling to identify individuals likely to be terrorists or to obtain information that can lead authorities to terrorists.

This event is Free and Open to the public. For more information, please contact Amita Lonial, 847.324.3112.
