In Defense of America: Fighting A Different Kind of War, Without Becoming A Different Kind of Country with Anthony Romero, Executive Director, American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).President Bush says the U.S. is fighting a "different kind of war," but does that mean it must become a different kind of country?

Romero shares examples from the legal war that he has been fighting at home.
