Former Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
Pro to the question "Is the ACLU Good for America?"
"I want to recognize the ACLU for its commitment to protecting our civil liberties. You have a long and proud history of standing up to defend the freedoms guaranteed to us by the Bill of Rights and the Constitution... The ACLU seeks to prevent the 'tyranny of the majority' from destroying our fundamental liberties."
