NPR's Juan Williams speaks with Attorney General John Ashcroft about whether the country is safer today than it was one year ago. Ashcroft has been instrumental in justifying the U.S. detention of suspected terrorists without normal U.S. legal proceedings. Critics charge Ashcroft is eroding the Constitution with these and other changes in law enforcement that Ashcroft justifies in the name of defending against terror.
