NSA Data Mining vs The Bill of Rights
A conversation with Nadia Kayyali,
Legal Fellow, Bill of Rights Defense Committee

Snowden's revelations unleashed a series of events and further disclosures that are still swirling.
This month's Other Voices forum will dig deep into Snowden's revelations -- and the revelations of past whistleblowers -- and try to answer the myriad questions about the data mining programs and what they mean for our civil liberties.
