The boundaries that separate international law, national rights, freedom of speech, and terrorism continue to become more blurred as the national agencies in countries like the US and Britain diligently work to protect human lives and information exchanges.
Of course these agreements and “policies” are controversial. The nature of the available activity – telephonic and Internet communication – is one critical element in efforts to further terrorist causes, expand activity beyond international borders, and threaten people.
At issue is the protection of “freedoms” without collateral damage – the loss of lives, property, economic security, and religious freedom.
The conversation is difficult and will continue to be so in my humble opinion.
