Karen Greenberg, director of the Center on National Security at Fordham University School of Law, examines whether it will ever be possible to restore civil liberties to the way they were before the War on Terror. Smithsonian Magazine editor Jerry Adler looks at how using gene-editing technology to completely wipe out mosquitoes would affect our world. The film, "Unlocking the Cage," follows an animal rights lawyer who argues on behalf of captive chimps in New York.
