Professors Tribe, Rosen and Dershowitz - an apology

September 7, 2007

In Terry Philpot's essay "The future is bright...", a review of David Cole's book Enemy Aliens: Double Standards and Constitutional Freedoms in the War on Terrorism published in The Times Higher of July 20, 2007, it was said that Professors Laurence Tribe, Alan Dershowitz and Jeffrey Rosen were among those who had "found no fault with the current US Government's anti-civil liberties actions". Such a statement is untrue - they have vociferously challenged many of the current US Government's anti-civil liberties actions both in submissions to the legal authorities in the US and in published articles and public speeches. They have also played a leading role in challenging the Administration's abuse of the US Constitution. Both The Times Higher and Mr Philpot apologise to Professors Tribe, Dershowitz and Rosen for any distress caused.
