On April 18, Andrew C. McCarthy, director of FDD's Center for Law & Counterterrorism, will participate in an Oxford-style debate presented by Intelligence Squared (IQ2 US). Mr. McCarthy will join with best-selling author David Frum of the American Enterprise Institute and University of California Berkeley Law Professor John Yoo, an author and former high-ranking official in the Bush Justice Department, as proponents of the motion: "Better More Domestic Surveillance Than Another 9/11."
Opposing the motion will be former U.S. Congressman Bob Barr, George Washington University Law Professor Jeffrey Rosen, an author and Legal Affairs Editor at The New Republic, and New York Law School Professor Nadine Strossen, the President of the American Civil Liberties Union. The debate will be moderated by Chris Bury, an Emmy Award-winning veteran correspondent of ABC News.
IQ2 US is an initiative of The Rosenkranz Foundation, based on the highly successful London debate program, Intelligence Squared. The debate will be held in New York City at the Asia Society and Museum (725 Park Avenue at 70th Street). There will be a cocktail reception at 6 p.m., with the debate beginning at 6:45 p.m. and concluding at 8:30 p.m. Details about the program are available on the IQ2 US website.
