"Ann Beeson, the American Civil Liberties Union's associate legal director and the lead attorney for the plaintiffs challenging the government's wiretapping policy, addresses the media in Detroit, in this June 12, 2006, file photo. A federal judge ruled Thursday, Aug. 17, 2006 that the government's warrantless wiretapping program is unconstitutional and ordered an immediate halt to it. U.S. District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor in Detroit became the first judge to strike down the National Security Agency's program, which she says violates the rights to free speech and privacy.

Ann Beeson, the American Civil Liberties Union

Seems to me that they forget the first word "American" is who they represent, not terrorists. I despise these people.

Beeson appeared as "herself" in a documentary short called "Lockdown On Main Street" (2003). Here is a summation of it from the IMDB (Internet Movie Database):

"This 24 minute featurette can be found on disc 2 of the 2-DVD special edition of "the Running Man". Does it have anything to do with the film? You would think it would if the powers that be put it on the disk, but alas no it doesn't. It's just a scare tactic piece on post-9//11 security measures. You know the typical Hollywood party line. Patriot Act BAD. Bush EVIL. McCarthy EVIL. Nixon EVIL. J. Edgar Hoover EVIL. blah blah blah. This featurette would be more at home as an extra on a Micheal Moore DVD. And I HATE that it's on this DVD for NO REASON AT ALL!! "
