More details emerged today about a domestic terrorism dictionary which was put together by the Department of Homeland Security earlier this year.  The newly-revealed document defines more than 50 phrases used to describe extremist groups identified as risks for potential domestic terrorism. However, there are growing concerns about the scope of the groups included in the document.

This feature takes a look at this topic with Gene Healy, Vice President of the Cato Institute, and Daniel McConchie, Vice President of Government Affairs for Americans United for Life.
