The NSA Review Group submits its report

One of the big news stories of 2013 was the NSA. Geoff Stone of the University of Chicago is one of five members of the Review Group on Intelligence and Communications Technologies formed by President Obama in August of this year. The group was tasked with, as Geoff puts it, “...submitting a formal Report by December 15, 2013, advising the President on how the United States can employ its information collection capabilities in a way that protects our national security and advances our foreign policy, while at the same time respecting our commitment to privacy and civil liberties, recognizing our need to maintain the public trust, and reducing the risk of unauthorized disclosure.” Eleven days after that deadline, Geoff Stone is here to talk to us about what the Review Group came up with.
