Since September 11, Senator Robert C. Byrd has viewed with alarm what he considers to be a "slow unravelling of the people's liberties", when all dissenting voices were stilled and awesome power swung suddenly to the US president to fight a "war on terror". This path violates historic American principles. Swept along, America entered a war without proper consideration and rushed dangerous legislation through Congress. Byrd does not shrink from speaking the truth to an ever more aggressive and imperial White House. "Our sacred traditions of debate, openness, and respect for opposing views are threatened as never before by the arrogance of power. Private agendas proliferate. Compulsive secrecy and the ideology of greed are quietly eroding the very foundations of our republic. I have taken a sacred oath to defend our constitution 'against all enemies, foreign and domestic'. This book is my effort to do just that."
