Debate to spotlight differences on civil liberties
A liberal, a conservative and a Libertarian will face off in a debate on civil liberties Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. in Giedt Hall Room 1002 on the UC Davis campus.
The event is the last stop on a debate tour by liberal Glenn Greenwald, a writer for the Guardian in the United Kingdom; conservative Bruce Fein, a deputy associate attorney general during the Reagan administration; and Libertarian Jacob Hornberger, president of The Future of Freedom Foundation.
Topics are to include the Patriot Act, drone warfare, extraordinary rendition, torture, regime change, habeas corpus and a general discussion about how the war on terrorism has impacted the rights of U.S. citizens.
The campus chapter of Young Americans for Liberty will host the event.
