Radio Interview on Marc Steiner Show
Professor Aziz speaks with Marc Steiner about the First Amendment implications of the recent conviction of Tarek Mehanna for his controversial speech, expression, and association activities.

The conviction of American-born Tarek Mehanna of conspiring to help Al Qaeda has raised questions about the balance between free speech and national security.  We're joined by Sahar Aziz to talk about the case.  She is an Associate Professor at Texas Wesleyan School of Law and is a fellow at the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding.  She is the author of the op-ed "Tarek Mehanna: Punishing Muslims for free speech only helps Al Qaeda," in the Christian Science Monitor. You can follow her on twitter at @saharazizlaw.
