SELLING PATRIOT ACT

DAMAGE CONTROL: SELLING PATRIOT ACT ON ROAD SHOW

Due to the massive opposition by cities, counties and states to the "Patriot Act," Attorney General John Ashcroft is now sending forth his emissary, former U.S. assistant attorney general, Professor Viet Dinh, who authored the controversial legislation to conduct damange control in selected cities. To date, 282 communities in 39 states and four state-wide resolutions, representing about 49.3 million people have stepped forward to oppose the Patriot Act, either in whole or specific parts. Ashcroft's point man for this road tour is Professor Viet Dinh, currently a professor of law at Georgetown University and a term member of the Council on Foreign Relations. Dinh escaped from Viet Nam in 1978 at age 10. Now, at age 34, Dinh is quite a story: boat refugee from Vietnam, Oregon fruit picker, Orange County burger-flipper, Harvard Law School graduate, U.S. Supreme Court clerk, Georgetown Law School professor and lawyer to a high-powered congressional committee. Dinh became a mascot for the Republican party and a lawyer for two of this nation's most bitterly partisan battles: working for Sen. Alfonse M. D'Amato (R-N.Y.) in the Senate investigation into President Clinton's Whitewater dealings in the mid-1990s and in 1998 for Sen. Domenici during Clinton's impeachment trial. Henry Hyde, [R-Ill], member of the Council on Foreign Relations, presided over the House Managers during the impeachment trial.

Currently, Dinh is on tour for Ashcroft, bringing his support of the very law he crafted to American cities in an effort to stop the massive opposition to the law and refusal by cities and counties to carry out its provisions. Professor Dinh supports the Patriot Act as a deterrent to terrorism under "our constitutional democracy." The united States of America was established a Constitutional Republic and has never been a democracy...
