Five years after September 11, are we any safer? Host Marcia Franklin discusses anti-terrorism policy with expert Juliette Kayyem.

Kayyem, who began her career as a trial lawyer for the U.S. Department of Justice, is now a lecturer at Harvard University, teaching courses on law and national security. From 2001 to 2003 she oversaw the terrorism and homeland security research program at Harvard. Prior to that, she served on the National Commission on Terrorism.

Franklin talks with Kayyem about the recommendations included in her report, "Preserving Security and Democratic Freedoms in the War on Terrorism." The document proposes policy changes on national security issues such as targeted assassinations, detention, ethnic profiling and wiretapping.

Kayyem also talks about basic preparations Americans can take in the event of a national disaster.
