This I believe



Michael Mullane, a Navy aviator in Vietnam and director of the University of Arkansas Law School Legal Clinic, is the featured essayist today in NPR's "This I Believe" series. He believes in the rule of law.

The horrific events of 9/11 tempted me to think that interning people without due process might be the thing to do. Maybe we do need to sacrifice personal liberties to be safe, but then I remember that generations of Americans bled and died to create and protect the rule of law, and I wonder: If we ignore it now, how will we ever get it back?

Good question for the president, don't you think?
