Does stringent security make the Sept. 11 memorial safer—or a hassle to visit and an infringement on our civil liberties?

Eleven years after 9/11 and a year after the memorial opened, it’s time for a freedom-loving people to consider the purpose and impact of such security measures. Let’s ask the experts—and ourselves—three questions. Is enhanced security necessary at the memorial? Are the specific measures in place likely to be effective? And what is their cost to a free society?

The terrorists attack us "for our freedom" yet every day we are less free. At least I still have the freedom not to go...for now.
