Publisher's Summary

Journalist Jeffrey Rosen and Jeffrey Toobin on this edition of Fresh Air. Jeffrey Rosen's article in this coming Sunday's New York Times Magazine is about the CIA's effort to partner with Silicon Valley to develop new anti-terrorist technologies. The CIA has founded a venture-capital firm that funds the development of cutting edge technologies that may be useful for national security, in particular new techniques for finding terrorists. Rosen will talk about some of these technologies - and what civil libertarians think of them. Journalist Jeffrey Toobin discusses his profile of Attorney General John Aschroft, published in this week's New Yorker. Toobin is a staff writer for the New Yorker. He is also a legal analyst for ABC news. His books include, Too Close to Call: The Thirty-Six-Day Battle to Decide the 2000 Election, A Vast Conspiracy, and The Run of His Life.
