I'm traveling today and therefore likely unable to post, but last night I spoke at the University of Wisconsin on "Civil Liberties and Terrorism in the Age of Obama."  An article on the event from the Badger Herald is here.  The speech -- which focused on the meaning (or lack thereof) of the terms "civil liberties" and "terrorism" -- was roughly 50 minutes long and can be seen in the video below.  There was also an hour-long question-and-answer session that followed which was quite good, and although the video of the Q-and-A portion appears to be not yet available, it will be posted here once it is.  Note that I will also be on MSNBC with Dylan Ratigan at roughly 4:00 p.m. today, and on Morning Joe tomorrow morning:


UPDATE:  I neglected to mention that tomorrow from 11:oo am-12:15 p.m., I'll be at NYU Law School for this event on Terrorism and the First Amendment.  The all-day event is free, open to the public, and features some excellent speakers and panels.

As for last night's speech at the University of Wisconsin, the 50-minute Q-and-A session that followed my speech is below, and was driven by uniformly excellent questions (and some dissents):
