Senator Robert Byrd spoke about his book Losing America: Confronting a Reckless and Arrogant Presidency, published by W.W. Norton & Company. It critiques the Bush administration and argues that the administration’s war on terror has resulted in Americans slowly losing their civil liberties. Senator Byrd believes this has happened as a result of the creation of the Department of Homeland Security and the Patriot Act. He also discussed the value he places on the U.S. Constitution and how he feels it has been devalued since September 11, 2001. Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton introduced Senator Byrd. close
