Senior cybersecurity officials testified on their efforts to protect the U.S. from cyber attacks. Much of the hearing focused on leaks revealing the extent of domestic phone surveillance by the National Security Agency (NSA). General Alexander in his testimony defended NSA surveillance programs. He said that he favored providing the public with more information about the programs if disclosure did not damage national security, but that he was unable to explain any details due to their classified status.

Senator Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) briefly halted the hearing to respond to a tweet from BuzzFeed reporter Rosie Gray, which read: “@SenatorBarb is trying hard to keep the other senators from asking Gen. Alexander anymore about data mining programs.” close
