What FBI raids say about citizens' rights

Late last month, the FBI raided homes in a number of American cities, including Chicago. Agents said they were in search of evidence connected to terrorist activity. No arrests have been made in the case, but the home owners--who have track records of anti-war activism--claim the raids are really government scare tactics. The FBI maintains that their search and seizure was an effort to secure evidence connected to terrorist activity, in particular the material support of terrorist groups. We talk with law professor Aziz Huq to find out more about the case, what material support of terrorism consists of, and whether the raids violated anyone’s rights.
