How the 9-11 Decade Changed America
National Constitution Center
525 Arch Street, Independence Mall
In partnership with the Truman National Security Fellows, the National Constitution Center presents an address by national security expert Richard Clarke. According to Clarke, in the decade following the attacks of September 11, 2001, the United States has undergone significant changes in how we view ourselves and how we conduct ourselves in world affairs. He argues there has been a radical reinterpretation of the Constitution, which has led to a redefinition of the relationship between the citizen and the state and a reshaping of our vision of the world. In his speech, Clarke will address what he sees as a troubling erosion of constitutional rights and an expansion of American engagement in overseas wars.
