Who Watches the Watchers: How much is enough surveillance transparency?
Friday, May 8th, 2015 from 2:30 to 4:00 pm in room 2203 of the Rayburn House Office Building
America is reeling over the apparent disconnect between what the public believes the Intelligence Community is doing, what the Intelligence Community is actually doing, and what the Intelligence Community believes it is authorized to do.
With a deadline to extend and/or reform controversial provisions of the PATRIOT Act looming, there is no more important time for Congress and the American people to know all they can about Executive Branch’s intelligence activities – but how much is too much?
What should the public know? What should Congress know? What is the right vehicle for these disclosures? Perhaps most importantly, what is the effect on our democracy of inadequate public and Congressional oversight? Join the Advisory Committee on Transparency and our panel of experts to discuss these questions and more:
