Michael Allen, managing director of Beacon Global Strategies, talked about National Security Agency (NSA) surveillance and U.S. techniques for gathering information both within the U.S. and abroad. He also spoke about how intelligence gathering had changed since September 11, 2001, and how the process of congressional oversight of intelligence gathering works. Video clips were shown of a House Select Intelligence Committee hearing earlier in the week. He also responded to telephone calls and electronic communications.

The Hill's Jeremy Herb also spoke by telephone about legislation in Congress related to the NSA, including the USA FREEDOM Act, and how it compares to the PATRIOT Act, which was passed in the aftermath of the 2001 terrorist attacks.

The program concluded with a video clip from the C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) stop on their “2013 LCV Cities Tour” in Helena, Montana. close
