The MTSU chapter of Young Americans for Liberty will hold a political debate on civil liberties between a liberal, a conservative, and a libertarian Feb. 8 at 7 p.m. in the State Farm Room of the Business and Aerospace Building on campus.

This debate is the third event of a four-stop Civil Liberties College Tour, which brings together liberal Glenn Greenwald, conservative Bruce Fein and libertarian Jacob Hornberger to discuss the greatest threats to Americans' civil liberties and constitutional rights.

The tour will visit Columbia University, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, Middle Tennesee State University and The Ohio State University throughout the week.

Greenwald, a noted writer for, will present arguments from a liberal perspective. 

Fein, who served as associate deputy attorney general under President Ronald Reagan, will offer a conservative's viewpoint, and Hornberger, president of The Future of Freedom Foundation, will make a libertarian case for individual rights.

Topics to be covered include the PATRIOT Act, extraordinary rendition, torture, regime change, habeas corpus, and a general discussion about how the war on terrorism has impacted the rights of U.S. citizens.

The event, which is free and open to the public, will be live streamed online.

More than 300 students are expected to attend.
