- Patriot II legislation that can arbitrarily revoke citizenship and allow terrorist sympathizers to vanish without a trace - Transponder implants that could be injected into the bodies of prisoners, foreign nationals, and perhaps one day all US citizens... Such high-tech measures are not the stuff of science fiction but in many cases are already being implemented. As Brzezinski discovers, similar measures have been in use for years in security states like Israel. But will Americans trade liberty for security? Will they have a choice? And can even the most radical measures insure that a 9/11 style attack won't happen again? From an unheeded warning six years before the WTC disaster to dramatic war-game scenarios secretly conducted at Andrews Air Force Base and chilling on-site simulations of actual attacks, Fortress America paints a sobering picture of the future of freedom...and what life may be like in a maximum security state. From the Hardcover edition.
