With key provisions of the Patriot Act due to sunset Dec. 31 and in the wake of a frightening report by The Washington Post about the FBI’s excessive use of national security letters, this week’s Coast to Coast podcast focuses on The Patriot Act. Joining cohost J. Craig Williams and me to discuss this are:

  • Jameel Jaffer, an attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union who has litigated several significant cases involving government secrecy and national security.
  • Coleen Rowley, the former FBI agent who exposed lapses in the investigation of suspected Al Qaeda operative Zacarias Moussaoui and who is now a Democratic candidate for Congress from Minnesota.
