75 Fordham Law Review 475 (2006)
We panicked the last time terrorists struck, and we will panic the next time. September 11 was merely a pinprick compared to the devastation of a suitcase A-bomb or an anthrax epidemic. The next major attack may kill tens of thousands of innocents, dwarfing the personal anguish of those who lost family and friends on 9/11. The political tidal wave threatens to leave behind a mass of repressive legislation far more drastic than anything imagined by the USA PATRIOT Act.
