Host: The Heritage Foundation. Increasing freedom and security are often perceived as conflicting interests. Such debates offer a false choice. Good public policies must serve to keep Americans safer while protecting individual liberty. Sound homeland security policies must not only protect the nation against transnational terrorist threats but also ensure that privacy and civil liberties do not become casualties as a result. The Heritage Foundation will host Secretary Chertoff, senior DHS officials, and other experts to review the accomplishments and challenges facing the Department of Homeland Security over the last five years of protecting the homeland while preserving privacy and civil liberties.
