Obama Tried to Stop Judge From Path- Breaking Victory for Fourth Amendment Against NSA and Shows Flaw in Obama Arguments About 1979 Supreme Court Decision.
with
Brett Max Kaufman, ACLU National Security Project

Ho, ho, ho it s the holiday season and we re calling, texting, emailing, and engaging in digital communication like never before, but at least, thanks to Edward Snowden who initiated a historic debate about surveillance and privacy we now know our private communications aren t as private as we thought, the NSA is tuning in and collecting massive amounts of our data. But, perhaps Judge Richard Leon s recent court decision, the recommendations of a government panel on surveillance policy and pressure on Congress to abolish the spy agency s surveillance programs will finally dump the lump of coal in the NSA s stocking it so deserves. Building Bridges will shed light on how the government is collecting, sharing and storing our data, go inside Judge Leon s ruling, analyze the government s panel's recommendations on changes to the NSA and discuss what else we need to do to protect our privacy.
