Łamanie praw człowieka w imię ochrony bezpieczeństwa. Polityka Stanów Zjednoczonych wobec zagrożenia terroryzmem na początku XXI wieku
Violation of Human Rights in the Name of Security. US Policy TowardsTerrorism Threat in the Early 21 Century
Languages of publication
The terrorist attacks on 11 September 2001 by the terrorist organization Al-Qaeda on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, initiated a series of changes in U.S. security policy. The amount of power the executive government, special services and police had was greatly extended in the name of the war on terror. A country that used to be characterized by openness, commitment to freedom and civil liberties, has become a country that spies on its own citizens. It has turned out that „the police of the world” do not comply with international law themselves and use torture against people suspected of terrorist activities.
