THE COST OF FREEDOM is a one-hour public television documentary presented nationally by Iowa Public Television. The show examines the history of civil liberties during wartime and the controversial USA PATRIOT Act which was passed in October of 2001. Passed overwhelmingly by Congress, The USA PATRIOT Act was a response to the terrorist attacks of 9-11. The PATRIOT Act was designed to empower both local and federal law enforcement in what the Bush Administration termed the "War on Terrorism." Since it's passage, the PATRIOT Act has drawn criticism and support from Republicans, Democrats and Libertarians. The documentary presents a balanced look at the PATRIOT Act including interviews with both pro and anti-PATRIOT Act lawyers, scholars and activists.
