NYC Event: LIBERTY VERSUS SECURITY What is the Proper Balance in Post-9/11 America?

Arlington, VA – On August 7, Concerned Veterans for America (CVA), Manhattan Institute and the Weekly Standard will host a special panel discussion in New York focusing on America’s ongoing efforts to balance individual liberty with national security needs in a post-9/11 world. Recent revelations about the size and scope of National Security Agency (NSA) surveillance have reignited debate over the longstanding conflict between individual liberty and national security demands. With the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan winding down and new types of threats emerging, how should intelligence and law enforcement agencies strike the proper balance to ensure security without compromising civil liberties and privacy? The event is the third in CVA’s “Defend & Reform Breakfast Series,” which kicked off in June in Washington, D.C. Guests will include John Stossel, host of ‘Stossel’ on Fox Business Network; Rep. Peter King (NY-D); Bill Kristol, editor of the Weekly Standard; Judy Miller, contributing editor, Manhattan Institute’s City Journal; and Gary Berntsen, former CIA Officer and CVA Regional Director. DATE:                       Wednesday, August 7, 2013 TIME:                        8-10 a.m. ET (registration begins at 8:00 a.m.) LOCATION:             Harvard Club | 35 West 44th Street | New York City

Space is limited so RSVP above or at Concerned Veterans for America
