Barack Obama: Civil Liberties Nightmare

Cato Sponsor e-Briefing
Wednesday, March 28, 2012
Noon–1 p.m. (EDT)

Featuring a presentation and live discussion with Gene Healy, Cato vice president and author of The Cult of the Presidency: America's Dangerous Devotion to Executive Power; moderated by Caleb O. Brown, Director of Multimedia.

In the Hope-saturated days of Obama's ascendancy, the New Republic wrote that, if elected, the former law professor could be "our first civil libertarian president." How's that working out?

Not well. Join Cato vice president Gene Healy for a discussion of President Barack Obama's expansion of executive power in areas such as war, assassination, surveillance and elsewhere.

This special online-only series is an opportunity to hear from Cato's policy staff. Please note that it is not necessary to download any software to watch the briefing online; no reservation is necessary.

Our thanks for your continued support of the Cato Institute. We hope you'll join in on the discussion.
