Synopsis

A renowned attorney and political critic, Bruce Fein reveals the dangers faced by our Constitution and our nation courtesy of the Bush Administration and a Congress asleep at the switch. In blistering detail, he deconstructs the policies of Bush in the War on Terror - from the flouting of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to the crippling of the Great Writ of habeas corpus - and forecasts that the damage he's done is unlikely to be repaired by a kindhearted successor. As we head toward the next national election, there are questions regarding matters more grave than education, healthcare, and even Iraq, questions that involve the very foundations of our government and the degrees to which they have been undermined, either actively or passively, by nearly everyone in power today. By exploring the constitutional crises of the past - Lincoln and habeas corpus through to Nixon and Watergate - Fein is able to begin to answer those questions and to discern a practical and rational way out of the current morass
