ABSTRACT
The article presents the opinion of Kenneth Roth who is executive director of Human Rights Watch crisis in the United States, on the questions dealing with a constitutional crisis in the United States. U.S. President George W. Bush's administration tends to view human rights and security as a zero-sum game. The United States faces a serious terrorist threat; it believes that some rights must be restricted in order to avoid any kind of terrorist attack. The article further raises the question about the administration's willingness to sacrifice human rights for security and its repercussions on the lives of people of the U.S.
