And of course not, the ACLU is not about convicting terrorists. The military or justice dept are. The ACLU is just what it's name implies: to protect YOUR civil liberties. They always get the wackos on tv, but I doubt you would want to live in a country where you did not enjoy the liberties that you do, many of which are defended by the ACLU in landmark cases. Its much more than "In God we Trust" off of coins! That's silly. But ensuring the Bill of Rights is not abused or neglected isn't.
