A former member of President Obama’s National Security Agency review committee said there is no significant value in mass surveillance programs.
University of Chicago law professor Geoffrey Stone spoke at the Constitutional Law University Law School on the failures of the surveillance programs revealed by whistleblower Edward Snowden.
The Des Moines Register reports that Stone said the committee was not tasked with judging the legality of the programs but whether or not the programs were effective and necessary. The final report from the committee found possible potential value in the programs but admitted they have not helped in preventing planned terrorist attacks.
Why are we allowing the authorities to continue to steal our money and funnel the funds into militarization of the police, surveillance programs and global war?
When are we going to stand up and create the change?
