William J. Clinton Center debuts new temporary exhibit

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (WJCPC) -- The William J. Clinton Presidential Center debuts its newest temporary exhibit, “Spies, Traitors, and Saboteurs: Fear and Freedom in America,” on Saturday, Jan. 18, 2014.  This exhibit, from the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C., provides guests with an historic perspective on acts of terror that have taken place on American soil.  Open through April 27, 2014, this exhibition reminds us that Americans have known and dealt with acts of terror since the founding days of the republic and will continue to face these challenges in the years ahead.

“Spies, Traitors, and Saboteurs” explores nine major events and periods in U.S. history when Americans were threatened by domestic enemies. With each major event, guests can track the incident as it happened, witness the government and public response, and examine the complexities of securing the nation without compromising the civil liberties upon which it was founded.
