«This lucid and well-documented study of the PATRIOT Act and related government initiatives quotes Benjamin Franklin’s argument that ‘They who would give up essential Liberty to purchase a little temporary Safety deserve neither Liberty nor Safety’. This book reveals in meticulous detail how far we have traveled down that road, and what may lie ahead if we do not heed Franklin’s warning.» (Noam Chomsky Author of ‘9-11’ and ‘Necessary Illusions: Thought Control in Democratic Societies’)
«The United States is now an evolving police state in the guise of national security, but here comes Walter M. Brasch, a contemporary Paul Revere, galloping through on a steed of information and warning… ‘America’s Unpatriotic Acts’ serves as a red alert, spotlighting domestic terrorists who reek with arrogance as they assault our civil liberties. Responsibly researched and diligently documented, it transcends liberal/conservative labels and reveals the utter arrogance behind cutesy acronyms, yet also provides a ray of hope for repeal of the PATRIOT Act. This comprehensive book ought to become a Constitutional amendment, immediately.» (Paul Krassner, Editor of ‘The Realist’; Author of ‘Murder at the Conspiracy Convention: And Other American Absurdities’)
«‘America’s Unpatriotic Acts’ is a powerful, persuasive, and expertly documented indictment against the tactics of fear that resulted in the PATRIOT Act and the Bush administration’s use of it to skirt the Bill of Rights and promote a political agenda. Walter Brasch comprehensively reports the story with page-turning suspense.» (Barbara S. Reed, Journalism and Media Studies, Rutgers University)
