NSA Surveillance And The Legacy Of 9/11

NSA Surveillance And The Legacy Of 9/11

Kojo examines new revelations about NSA surveillance and explores the tension between national security and personal privacy.

Twelve years after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Americans are once again debating the price we pay for national security amid revelations that the government spies on citizens in the name of counterterrorism. The highly-secretive National Security Agency is being forced to defend its intelligence-gathering methods against charges they violate Americans' privacy rights. Kojo explores NSA surveillance abroad and at home, the role of leading technology companies and the consequences for individual privacy.
