ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the tension between the established system of the U.S. governance and the emergency measures necessary to respond terrorism. It outlines the operation of democracy during emergencies as the product of a binary tradeoff between democratic failure and national security. It is intended to provide historical evidence of democratic failures in terms of national emergency. It highlights the implications of the September 11, 2001 terrorism and evaluates how democracy functions in the situation.
