Glenn Greenwald, who is speaking at our upcoming June 6-8 conference Restoring the Republic 2008: Foreign Policy and Civil Liberties, writes one of the finest political blogs on the Internet. Every day, with sharpness and clarity he brings peoples attention to the politics and consequences of the federal governments attacks on civil liberties. He spares no one, either Democrat or Republican. Moreover, I have never seen anyone more effective in provoking responses from the powerful and influential people he exposes who are instrumental in destroying liberty in America.
A lawyer and constitutional scholar, Glenn is the author of two New York Times bestselling books How Would a Patriot Act? (2006) and A Tragic Legacy (2007). His third book, Great American Hypocrites, is due out in April.
Glenn’s blog is posted on Salon.com:www.salon.com/opinion/greenwald. It is one of the blogs I try to read every day. I am confident that his talk will be among the most insightful, informative, and entertaining at the conference. His talk is entitled The 2008 Candidates and Civil Liberties: A New Path or More of the Same?
The conference will be held on June 6-8 (Friday morning through Sunday night) at the Hyatt Regency Reston in Reston, Virginia, one of the nicest areas of northern Virginia. (Its best to fly into Dulles Airport but Reagan and BWI will work as well.) The conference price is $495, which includes all Hyatt Regency meals breakfast, lunch, and dinner during the 3 days of the conference plus admission to all 19 speeches.
To register for the conference, go to our conference website or call us at 703-934-6101. Remember to make your hotel reservations at the Hyatt Regency Reston after you register for the conference; be sure to mention the FFF conference to secure the special discounted rate of $149 per night, which is incredibly cheap for a Hyatt in the D.C. area in June.
