Exclusive: Elaborate New York City Post-9/11 Security

NYPD Commish: Big Apple Has Its Own Army, Navy, Tanks & Soon A Submarine

NEW YORK (CBS 2) — The latest terror threat has come out just as a brand new CBS/New York Times poll shows 1 out of 3 New Yorkers still thinks about the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks at least once a week.

CBS 2’s Marcia Kramer has an exclusive look at the city’s post-9/11 security.

There are radiation detection boats in the waters, cameras that have been placed all over lower and Midtown Manhattan and there are cops with guns and tanks and all kinds of weapons, because in New York a terror attack could come from anywhere, and anyone.

“There’s no shortage of people who are willing to give up their lives for the cause,” NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly said.

It’s been 10 years but our concerns about terrorism are still staggering and constant. Even the death of Osama bin Laden didn’t lessen the fear.

Two thirds of Americans, 67 percent in a stunning CBS/New York Times poll say killing the al Qaeda mastermind didn’t make them feel safer.

But that’s not all. A majority – 57 percent — say subway security measures are insufficient.

And as for other potential terror targets:

* Only 27 percent say airports are a lot safer

* Only 20 percent say bridges and tunnels are safer

* And just 14 percent say area nuclear plants are safer

Kramer sat down with Commissioner Kelly for a rare and candid talk about terror. Some of the arrows in his anti-terror quiver are pretty amazing and newly revealed.

For openers, he has his own navy.

“We actually have the ability to have a small submarine, not manned, to check the part of the boats that are submerged,” Kelly said.

“We have a new boat on order. We envision a situation where we may have to get to an island or across water quickly, so we’re able to transport our heavy weapons officers rapidly.”

Kelly also has his own army — 1,000 anti-terror cops with tanks and weapons, carved out of the NYPD after 9/11.

“We have to do things differently. We know that this is where terrorists want to come,” Kelly said.

But in the city’s war on terror it’s often about what you don’t see. You do see the cops and the weapons and the bomb dogs. You don’t see the legion of  bi-lingual undercover officers and analysts. You also don’t see much of the intricate web of surveillance cameras the commissioner continues to build.

“Now you’re going to see a fairly rapid increase in the number of cameras,” Kelly said.

Much of the information streams into a high-tech center in lower Manhattan where analysts evaluate it in real time, 24/7.

The security comes at a mind-boggling price.

“Probably 9/11 has cost us at least a trillion dollars as a country,” Kelly said.

Despite the budget crisis, Mayor Michael Bloomberg says he’s committed to fighting terror.

The police commissioner said the money and effort being spent to protect New York City is a “clear message” to terrorists to stay away.

    Obviously, that’s where YOU came from.

    These are the most warped of the radical left wing – even Obama wants nothing to do with them.

    Folks, there’s an easy way to b-slap these wack jobs all over the place, and here it is:

    If Bush (or whomever) REALLY took down the towers, Building 7, your sister, etc….


    Wait – let me get some popcorn before you come back with your reason why you are from “LandoftheLameOs”.

    • DirtyD

      Exactly, why would Osama bin Laden invite an U.S. invasion on his sanctuary country by openly attacking us on 9/11? He had already succeeded in keeping UNOCAL (an American energy company) out of Afghanistan, who with the aid of Hamid Karzai (the now pres. of Afghanistan) had been working to broker a deal with the Taliban to build the TAPI (Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India) oil pipeline. Bin Laden was instrumental in shutting those negotiations down by the end of the Clinton administration, which culminated in Clinton’s missile strikes into Afghanistan targeting bin Laden. The TAPI pipeline was no more, bin Laden had successfully defeated U.S. interests. So of course, we have all the motive in the world to blame him and his followers for 9/11, after all, we’ve been frothing at the mouth to get into Afghanistan for decades to build that pipeline and feed oil and natural gas from Turkmenistan to the massive industrializing nation of India. The other route for that pipeline is through Iran, and we certainly don’t want them reaping all the benefits. Starting to get the picture here? I encourage everyone reading this to look at a map of the region, and research the TAPI pipeline. Much like Iraq, Afghanistan is all about control of natural resources.

      • Jesse

        The actual reason that Clinton fired missles at Osama in Afganistan in the late 90’s was a retaliation for the bombing of US embasies in Africa. Two different embasies were bombed within minutes of each other. I believe it was in Chad and Kenya but I could be mistaken which exact countries it was. Those missles targeted terrorist training camps of Al Queda whom claimed responsibilities for the bombings. Truth of the matter is Osama had it coming long before 9/11 and had a history of attacking US assets. Do people like you just ignore history and facts?

      • Heidi

        Osama Bin Laden was a CIA Tactician.
        Look it up.
        He was given the the name Tim Osman.
        There are news reports before 9/11 about him being a tactician.

        His family met G.H.W. Bush in the White House the day of 9/11.
        While air space was closed for all of us lowly folk, the Bin Ladens were flown out with an escort.

    • paul

      Everything you write so boldly in upper case “King Max”, this is your “evidence” that the official story of 911 is not a fraud? What a pathetic sentence. Did it ever dawn on you that there is a difference between willing and able? Lets just say those people actually took credit for it, which they didnt really, so the word of known terrorists holds more water than that of 1200 firemen, architects, and other professionals who all agree the official story is false? I know of entire office buildings of engineers who all agree it could not have happend the way it is purported to. Only a naive idiot with his head in the sand could believe those towers and building 7 just happened to fall perfectly on their own footprint “on accident”

    • Rex

      You are absolutely right, Kusokurae. Bin Laden’s FBI wanted poster did not even list 9/11 as one of his crimes. If Craig wants to believe CFR communications director George Stephanopoulos, that’s his privilege. But it shows where he gets his info – from the mainstream CFR-controlled media. Again, he’s probably never had an original thought in his life.

        Odigo says workers were warned of attack
        By Yuval Dror Haaretz 26.09.01

        Odigo, the instant messaging service, says that two of its workers received messages two hours before the Twin Towers attack on September 11 predicting the attack would happen, and the company has been cooperating with Israeli and American law enforcement, including the FBI, in trying to find the original sender of the message predicting the attack.

        Micha Macover, CEO of the company, said the two workers received the messages and immediately after the terror attack informed the company’s management, which immediately contacted the Israeli security services, which brought in the FBI.

      WE, millions worldwide, are awake, unplugged from the illusion, the misinformation you call the main stream media, we all read about the 40 smoking guns on 911, and we will never forget. You will be surprised when it all comes crashing down, and will be in shock. Those who can think for themselves will already be taking care of their families.

      High-Level Officials Eager to Spill the Beans About What REALLY Happened on 9/11 … But No One In Washington or the Media Wants to Hear

    • DonM

      Steel doesn’t have to melt to lose its strength. A change from body centered cubic to face centered cubic crystal is what black smiths used for years to allow them to pound steel into shapes.

      That is science. See your doctor and get your meds adjusted.

      • Avenger

        No offense Don, but anyone with half a brain can watch the towers collapsing and realize it was a controlled demolition. The same for WTC 7. Not to mention the fact that “thermite” was present everywhere in the rubble. Even the commission that gave the final report on 9-11 says that they were blocked from obtaining all pertinent information for their report.

      • Plubius

        Be careful of people who say anyone with half a brain would agree with me.

    • Pulsa Denura!

      Because you fool- OBL DIDNT claim credit. In one of his many (faked or SITE-released videos, take your pick) he completely denied having anything to do with it- while say he was glad it happened. Maybe dunces cant discern theat difference. BTW- in the years after 911, Cheney himself said in a FOX intv with Tony Snow that OBL was not on the FBI ‘wanted’ list for Sept 11 attacks. Which should have been headline news and was predictably buried. Do some research and stop living like a zombie.

      • Steveo

        He headed the organization that carried out the attacks. Semantics. What is your point anyway?

    • LandoftheLameOs

      ……I think you read me wrong — That was satire that I was writing in reponse to some lame-o saying 9/11 was an INSIDE JOB. Don’t worry i’m like you….

      I was writing to the impossibility of the contrary that 9/11 didn’t happen the way it really did. National Geographic did a show on the “9/11 Truthers” last week who try to prove it was an “Inside Job”. They make the estimate that upwards of 3000-6000 people would have to be in on it from start to finish and maintain silence to this DAY.

      SO ALL OF YOU LAME-O’S who keep pasting in your CONTROLLED DEMOLITOIN links from PopSci — just keep it coming. Because you know EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED. (more satire)

      polls taken quietly
      think it was Israel. 43% earlier and growing.

      And who has forgotten the four Jews reported dancing and laughing when the
      towers were struck. Remember?
      THE NEW YORK TIMEs, hardly anti zionists, the opposite, reported it.
      But when questions arose, it disappeared.

      “If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy”

      ~ T. Jefferson

      • das

        “If there is ever a story about national security vigilance, fake quotes from the Founding Fathers shall be trotted out.” – Me

        That’s not a Jefferson quote. It’s usually attributed to James Madison, but he didn’t say it, either. What James Madison said was:

        “Perhaps it is a universal truth that the loss of liberty at home is to be charged against provisions against danger, real or pretended from abroad.” – Letter to Thomas Jefferson (1798-05-13); published in Letters and Other Writings of James Madison (1865), Vol. II, p. 141


        “In time of actual war, great discretionary powers are constantly given to the Executive Magistrate. Constant apprehension of War, has the same tendency to render the head too large for the body. A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty. The means of defence agst. foreign danger, have been always the instruments of tyranny at home. Among the Romans it was a standing maxim to excite a war, whenever a revolt was apprehended. Throughout all Europe, the armies kept up under the pretext of defending, have enslaved the people.” – Speech, Constitutional Convention (1787-06-29), from Max Farrand’s Records of the Federal Convention of 1787, vol. I [1] (1911), p. 465

        At least get your quotes straight. Unfortunately, Madison wasn’t talking about domestic police operations. And the familiar “liberty vs security” quote is usually misunderstood, too. It’s not a zero sum game: we can and should have a good measure of BOTH liberty and security. Indeed, security is necessary, or any home of “liberty” being maintained fails utterly.

      • Jeff McMahan

        Richard, I did not say that radical Muslims did not commandeer the planes and crash them into towers 1 & 2 but there is no reason in Gods green earth why building 7 should have fallen. The conspiracy about 9/11 is that our goverment deliberately allowed the events to unfold, for Bubba Clinton was told so much from former national security advisor Sandy Berger – who conveniently and illegally removed incriminating personal (a memo from the FBI director that alerted berger to the fact that a Miami flight called to share with them that ragheads were learning to fly – not land or take-off) notes from the national archives which pinpointed Bubba’s involvement – or lack thereof!!!

      “Every collectivist revolution rides in on a Trojan horse of “emergency”. It
      was the tactic of Lenin, Hitler, and Mussolini. In the collectivist sweep
      over a dozen minor countries of Europe, it was the cry of men striving to
      get on horseback. And “emergency” became the justification of the subsequent
      steps. This technique of creating emergency is the greatest achievement that
      demagoguery attains.” — Herbert Hoover.

The House did not even vote yet Obama signed it into a bill. It is illegal people! They all have ignored the U.S. Constitution. Is this what communism is? yes. I knew what communism was when I was in grade school, apparently the Americans don’t know what inside communism is that have infiltrated about every leadership position in this country. Congress knows and just cares about their power and love of money and don’t care if they destroy our children and grandchildren. Secular humanism is a religion and hates the real U.S. Constitution and our patriotic peoples and soldiers. We need to do something. it is better dead than red. Remember that saying anyone?? we lost our pensions and social security anyway, WATCH and SEE. we need to protect our borders and our freedom, not the Middle East who brags on their false god and fallen angels who rule over them, and they want to rule over us. The real God of the Bible always wins, and I am tired of being told to bow before pagan gods and their disgusting cultures and food. ” I am the Lord thy God and thou shalt not have other gods before me” Ring a bell anyone??

      To make matters worse, Jesse Ventura, a Navy SEAL veteran,supports this stupid conspiricy idiot idea that it was an inside job by the government. No wonder he lasted ONLY one hitch as a SEAL.

    You people must be on dope or something. I cannot believe you literally think Bush caused 9/11. What kind of kool aid are you drinking, because it is sickening? If Bush caused 9/11 then Obama would not be in the Whitehouse today for heaven’s sake. I mean, if Bush had that much control don’t you think he would have become a dictator or are you unable to think for yourself? Liberals are those people that if somebody says something they will believe. They don’t care if there isn’t any evidence to that effect after ten years, but if somebody says so it is true. Liberal ignorance is going to destroy America. I’ve read articles that the heat could have been intense enough to melt the steel beams. You or I do not have a clue how hot it got in the towers after gallons and gallons of fuel were ignited from the planes when they hit and there was no where for the fire to escape, but inside the towers. Read up on your fires. They become so intense they will blow windows and everything out, because it sucks up all the oxygen in it’s path. Wonder why we didn’t read anything about that? Liberal democrats would have you believe lies, because they know you are such a sucker you won’t search for the truth on your own. That is the difference between liberals democrats and conservative republicans. A republican will at least search for the truth instead of rely on others to sucker them into their vile lies. When I think of our brave men and women that fight for you and me to be safe and you people spit on them every time you say stuff like our government or Bush caused 9/11. Why don’t you leave the United States if you think things are so bad, because you have no respect for America at all. Only a liberal democrat could be so vile. How can someone be so inconsiderate just as the tenth anniversay is coming up?

They literally gut it then cut through metal beams to the point its almost ready to collapse on its own. Tell me how they accomplished that, genius, without anyone in the building knowing it. As to your comment about the plane that struck the Pentagon. You are simply wrong and believing only the silly, fairy tale lies people have been feeding you. Try using your brain for a change.

      • Iraq Vet

        You my friend are awake and 100% correct. If only everyone else could figure this out finally as well.

        I find the TSA more annoying than threatening. You may be so inadequate that you find them threatening. That is your inadequacy speaking, not reality.

        Yes, there are photos of aircraft at the pentagon. There were parts. Shame on you.

  • J Bigglesworth

    Heard a Politician on the radio as I was being molested by TSA security at the airport today telling us that although the terror alert is credible we must not change the way we conduct our daily lives or else the terrorists win.

  • Steven Moshlak

    What a total waste of money and resources.

    Can someone tell me how all of this equipment and manpower could have prevented what happend 10 years ago?

    • zenny

      The reason majority still do not feel safe is because they are not convinced bad boy bin laden was actually taken out since obama has steadfstly refused to provide irrefutable proof of such to the public. The cameras on the seal team members should have provided the required proof which the government refuces to show the public. Can you say conspiracy?

  • bob

    Good thing our borders are WIIIIIIDE open… otherwise one might think all this talk of “terrorism” is total bogus.

    • rjm2238

      Hey Bob,
      We can’t be closing those borders now; they are thought to be the source of future Democrat votes so what’s more important, the future of the country or the electing of more Democrats?
      I would have to say the current administration has answered that one, Future Democrat votes are number one! To heII with the nation’s current security and future well being.
      I tell you Bob, these people disgust me and I cannot wait until Nov. 2012 to be rid of them, hopefully once and for all.

        I agree with you, but none of the contenders on the republican side are really any good either. Only one that scores above a C for border control is Bachmann. The rest are rinos and look just like George Hoover Bush.

  • J.F. K

    The so-called “terrorist threat” is utterly bogus. Does everyone remember the hundreds and hundreds of false “terrorists alerts” issued by DHS? And what this has done to the entire nation? The real terrorist in America are already here, and they’re wearing badges and bullying around Americans while spying on them incessantly.

  • Diego Roswell

    What a waste of time and money to use military style defenses against a faceless enemy from within that is so willing to die by suicide. These efforts made by the broke state of NY are so over the top that the terrorists if there are any, must be laughing their silly little turbans off. The “enemy” is the current administration and all that believe that spending the people’s money is the answer. The “enemy” is the man in the radical leftist that has no regard for private property. The true “enemy” is not fought with tanks and a navy but the truth. Radical Islamists plus radical leftists plus union organization equals the real threat against america.

    • Mark

      Diego, the truth is we are all the enemy. People are waking up to the fraud of terrorism and the police state being forced on us.

  • Dan Shay

    Army, Navy, tanks, submarines? Sounds like the makings of a police state.

    • Mike Notsaying

      sounds like the beginning of a 4th Reich to me, brown coat army of jackbooted thugs

  • John Blackadder

    To paraphrase Winston: “Never, in the history of Man, has so few cost so many so much!”
    We have lost our sens of proportion. A trillion dollars. That’s $3 Billion per al Qaeda member. That’s not money well spent. Offering rewards of $100 Million per head would have worked better, and cost a lot less.
    And, sadly, if the truth be known, a dedicated lone terrorist could still bring a truck bomb to New York. A good mole or a paid informer are way better than those submarines.

  • none

    Has no one ever put a camera on the collar of their pets to see what they do during the day? This is the same thing , the new world order just wants to keep an EYE on their pets too.

  • Troy Mclure

    NYC is nothing more than a third world country. It is not the center of the universe nor the center of the U.S. No one outside that third world country really cares about NYC or the key stone cops who think they are equivalent with those who actually protect America and serve in the military. Boys become cops, Men serve in the military.

    • Justin

      Troy McLure,
      you are clearly an ignorant red neck. I doubt you have ever left the country.
      NYC is the best city in the world. But you have probably never travelled outside your podunk town with a population of 66 people.

      People like you sadden me. You are the reason people abroad say “ignorant American”

    • Kelly Van Rijn

      And idiots like ‘Troy Mclure’ do neither, preferring instead to sit on his fat a$$ and complain. God Bless NYC, its cops and the US Military!

      • Troy Mclure

        Actually, I am an Army veteran. The fact is cops are reactionary and sacrifice nothing more than any other citizen would. There is nothing that cops do you for you that you cannot do for yourself. If you rely on cops for your personal protection you are wrong and might as well give up now. A cop is not your best protection, you are.

        The only thing that cops can do that you can’t is write speeding tickets. Cops go home every night to their cozy beds and have no duty under law to protect anyone. They can walk away anytime they want and not be held accountable, just look at what the New Orleans cops did after Katrina… they ran away scared.

    • Pete

      Troy, many MEN become police. I agree that the REAL fighting is done by the military. However, it’s not correct to denegrate the police force because their job is to protect Americans in every city across the country. Imagine an America without the police and it gets pretty ugly.

      • P. Amboy

        Cops protect no one, they clean up afterward.

    • Joni

      everyone knows people who join the military had no other choices when they graduated from high school, well other than flipping burgers (would u like fries with that?)

      • Ebt66

        How very funny. I joined in 1985 because (even as a conservative) I answered Kennedy’s inaugural call back in 1961 and his address to West Point in 1963 about what you can do for your country and what you are doing for your country. I served till 2006. During that time, The Army sent me to language school for German and Arabic, both of which I spoke fluently and still speak pretty darn well. I went to language school with two individuals who had doctorate degrees and a number who had masters degrees. These were all enlisted “hamburger flippers”. After I retired I went back to college and earned a 3.49 GPA and Phi Kappa Phi honors and am now a social studies teacher at an alternative school for kids with behavior or drug/alcohol problems. So tell me Joni, what have you done for YOUR country lately? (besides denigrate those who choose to serve willingly.)

      • ProudMama

        You are one who knows nothing about the Military. Those in the Military now are more educated then most people their age in the civilian sector. Many are married with children and they take care of their responsibilities and they take care of their families – unlike many of those in the private sector. I joined right out of High School – not because I had to – but because I wanted to see the world and I have – I’ve been to all 50 states, and to 14 countries and I wouldn’t trade my 30 years in uniform for anything. I am a better person because I served.

      • USAF

        You have no idea what you are speaking of all AF pilot have degrees, all officers have degrees and a lot more enlisted then you think have degrees, some join the military because they could not afford college, others join for patriotism to their country there are many reasons. Your comment shows you ignorance about the modern American Military personnel.

      • rob

        really Joni? flipping burgers or calibrating aircraft instrumentation so a pilot can land on a 10 foot square, at night with no lights by following a dot on the instrument panel… flipping burgers flipping burgers or driving a billion dollar boat… flipping burgers or running a nuclear power plant.. .

        the modern military does not want burger flippers with no choices… why do think they contract out the menial tasks to haliburton

        My honor students (yes two if them) joined out of a sense of pride and honor. Your statement simply shows your ignorance.

        If I was young enough I’d have been there with them, university degrees and all.

        Troy’s last sentence is bang on.

      • Fred Hoot

        I know several college graduates that signed up and joined the military.
        In fact, I know a civilian who works in a technical field that is on the battlefield right now for his country.
        Remember it IS an all-volunteer service.

  • Samuel

    I don’t understand why articles like this use polls that measure the perception of safety as evidence towards our nation’s actual safety.

  • LandoftheLameOs

    You’re right. When Bush took office, he and his administration had to find a way of killing over 2000 people in a single day – but not literally. They had to make the planes land somewhere else and have all of the passengers live in hiding the rest of their lives, THE REST OF THEIR LIVES. And to get this idea to work the administration, had to have over 3000 other people in government, including first responders, and privately owned airline companies to buy in – and of course, the demolition specialists with I suspect no conscience. All of these people had their consciences wiped of moral discernment to carry out “The Inside Job”. And to date – no one has SAID anything —- those people my friend, are True Americans. Because America, is a giant inside job. And btw, the airlines companies would have to agree to suffer billions in lost revenues and expenses. And btw, the last time I checked we are enjoying great discounted gas prices at the pump because we did go to the middle east to get the oil. It all makes perfect sense. Maybe you should make a youtube video on it – but wait somebody else did that and you bought into it……HOOK – LINE – and – SINKER BENEATH 165 feet of water.

    • TheRealKingMax


      Obviously, that’s where YOU came from.

      These are the most warped of the radical left wing – even Obama wants nothing to do with them.

      Folks, there’s an easy way to b-slap these wack jobs all over the place, and here it is:

      If Bush (or whomever) REALLY took down the towers, Building 7, your sister, etc….


      Wait – let me get some popcorn before you come back with your reason why you are from “LandoftheLameOs”.

    • attilathehun

      One of the nice things about the old CB radio fad was that it’s range was only 10 miles or so and you could not post messages on it. Back then the conspiracy folks would not have had an audience. The internet is a powerful tool for the mentaly ill.

      Any time I need a laugh I pull up that video of some nutjob trying to melt chicken wire with lighter fluid and then say that proves the towers were brought down with demolition charges.. Some people are permanently stuck on stupid.

    No one with any common sense denies the pure evil in the Muslim terrorists, but is this not a ploy by the social Marxist, dictator of NYC, Bloomberg?

    • Fred

      The Muslim just want the US govt out of their countries. Terrorism can be ended by not invading and occupying the Middle East, of course minding our own business isnt good for business.

      • Frank

        Oh really Fred? Muslims are called on in the koran to convert or kill all non-believers, you may say this is only the islamic extremists, but you can not deny that it is directly from the koran. They will bring their jihad to the infidels where ever they are…as 9/11/01 proved. Their true enemy is any people that value freedom!

    • Regulas

      Bloomberg is a liberal nazi and terrorist sympathizer. NYC has salt, trans fat police and who knows what other big brother laws. His regime has allowed a 9-11 victory mosque to be built. I could now care less if the Muslims take your pit-hole city out, you deserve it.

  • Tom Dewick

  • Dave Shaffer

  • Bob Kutz

    Hey, I am all in favor of New York having their own troops and assets to deal with terrorists. Local control is far more effective than federal control.

    As long as they allow the citizens to protect (arm) themselves as well.

    A government that controls all the weapons controls all the people.

    I think there’s even something in the Constitution about it.

    • Regulas

      Good point and well taken by many of us who know that. I want the heads of who knew about the gun running to Mexico to drum up support for the lie that 95% of drug runner guns came from us when in fact it was about 5%. thats why the Obama regime tried to arm them all with our guns so they could justify new laws to ours away. I say over my dead body, live free of die trying and the time is approaching when a new civil war may have to fought unless the Marxist/Socialists government backs down from it’s progression toward a police state.

  • BFDeal

    If NYC is that well secured, won’t the damn terrorists look for a “soft” city?? 3000 people is 3000 people. Any city will do.

      yeah, it would really make a global statement to attack some tank town like the one you live in…nyc and dc are THE targest; always were and always will be…nyc and dc…the rest of you bumpkins don’t need to worry…

  • mortman

    A submarine? how many parking tickets is that going to cost? how much money can these self perpetuating rip offs waste? it is endless. The subways are so easy to attack, if there were terrorist who wanted to attack them, they would have long ago.

  • Joe Kliplinger

    What should the rubes say about Obama now. We voted Obama because we hated Bush’s dictatorship. We want Gitmo closed. We want rendition stopped. We want to bring troops home. We want our civil liberties back. So has anything changed under Obama.
