Because freedom can't protect itself
Ms. Susan Herman, ACLU President: why is the american civil liberties union *DEATHLY SILENT* on the Torture Murder of Americans with highly classified directed energy neurological, etc. weapons??
Congratulations Susan! You have some big shoes to fill, but I think you'll do a fantastic job!
I completely agree with your statement on reaching out to religious groups who believe the Union is hostile to thier values. The ACLU's agenda is so broad that everybody, no matter what their politics, has some issues in common with us. I also think it's a laudable idea to be involved more in the international community--specifically on the issues of drug legalization, immigration, religous persecution, and issues related to terrorism.
I wish you the best of luck and hope to see you ruffling plenty of feathers, as every libertarian must do!
P.S.--Might I suggest encouraging a change in ACLU policy concerning the Second Amendment in light of D.C. v. Heller? I'm from Texas after all--I had to ask!
The ACLU is a joke!
You so utterly deserve this honor, and you will be an awesome president for the ACLU. Thanks again for all you do for freedom and justice.

As I see it, the ACLU is the last vestige of hope for this country founding principles.
DON'T EVER MISTAKE THEM FOR THE ACLJ.
Why is the ACLU so reluctant to support the Second Amendment? It seems the ACLU does not support the second based on class or category rather than individual merit and this is very similar to the “D” word.
