ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the risks taken by Americans to suspend their civil liberties to restore their safety following the 9/11 terrorist attack. He says that former U.S. President George W. Bush has damaged the country's democracy after 9/11 when he declared "war on terror" to show his preemptive war policy in Iraq. He mentions that President Barack has sought to restore the constitutional restraint while calming the war on terror, suggesting to handle terrorism as a law enforcement.
