Gingrich on the First Amendment

In today's Manchester Union Leader there is an article about New Gingrich's speech before some 400 state and local power brokers wherein he calls for a reexamination of freedom of speech in light of the continuing terrorist threat that he sees.

Gingrich, speaking at a Manchester awards banquet, said a "different set of rules" may be needed to reduce terrorists' ability to use the Internet and free speech to recruit and get out their message.

"We need to get ahead of the curve before we actually lose a city, which I think could happen in the next decade," said Gingrich, a Republican who helped engineer the GOP's takeover of Congress in 1994.

My question is this: suppose we win the so called war on terror, what will we have left to show for it?
