ACLU Launches 'Blog of Rights'

It is only fitting that an organization dedicated to upholding the Bill of Rights should launch the Blog of Rights, because, as the blog's tag line says, "freedom can't blog itself." The American Civil Liberties Union envisions its new blog "as a marketplace of ideas and discourse on pressing civil liberties issues, from surveillance and extraordinary rendition to religious freedom and the rights of protesters," says Executive Director Anthony D. Romero in this introductory post.

To kick off the new blog (actually a renaming and redesign of an older blog), the ACLU has assembled a team of guest contributors to engage in a symposium on torture. Yesterday's offerings featured:

On tap for today are posts from Christy Hardin Smith of Firedoglake, Nicole Belle of Crooks and Liars, Digby of Hullabaloo, author Paul Verhaeghen, and ACLU Senior Legislative Counsel Chris Anders.
