Napolitano: We Are "Profoundly" Less Free And Less Safe Today Than Before 9/11

JUDGE ANDREW NAPOLITANO: There's a view amongst the public that they are prepared to trade civil liberties for security because they have accepted what is in my view the myth that by trading civil liberties they will somehow be safer. The question I would like to see in that poll is, are we less free today than we were on September 10, 2001? And I would say that we are profoundly less free. Every single liberty guaranteed in the Bill of Rights has been violated with impunity by the Bush administration and by the Obama administration.

BRET BAIER: We are less free and less safe?

NAPOLITANO: Yes. It is the worst of all worlds because we now have come to the point to expect the government to spy on us. We don't even complain about it. And our grandchildren will be raised in an environment where that will know no privacy and they will know that they are expected to answer for their personal behavior to a faceless government bureaucrat.

BAIER: Well, Judge, do you think 13 years would have been without a major terror attack had we not stepped up the amount of security that we have that may have been taking away some liberties?

NAPOLITANO: Let me tell you why we have been safe for the past 13 years, because the CIA has killed the bad guys overseas, not because General Alexander has spied on decent, hard-working Americans. They should keep their eye on the ball over there and leave the rest of us to be free here.

" Nothing in the world is more flexible and yielding than water. Yet when it attacks the firm and the strong, none can withstand it, because they have no way to change it. So the flexible overcome the adamant, the yielding overcome the forceful. Everyone knows this, but no one can do it. "

--Lao Tzu
