Transcript: Newseum Special Program – NSA Surveillance Leaks: Facts and Fiction
Interesting transcript of a panel discussion from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. With all the hype surrounding Snowden’s disclosure of Prism and the collection of surveillance big data by The NSA it is of note that they claim to have investigated only 300 cases resulting from these data sets. Is their net too wide or is all the publicity just scaremongering?
