Rep. Peter King (R-NY) returned to America's Newsroom today, telling Bill Hemmer why he believes NSA surveillance is critical to preventing terror attacks.
Sean Joyce, Deputy Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, detailed certain terrorist plots stopped because of the NSA program embroiled in controversy over surveillance gathered from American citizens.
Yesterday during an open hearing on the evolving NSA surveillance scandal, Democratic Senator Jeff Merkley (OR) grilled Gen. Keith Alexander on the program responsible for collecting the data of millions of Americans. In one specific back and forth, Merkley held up his cell phone and challenged him, asking, "Here - I have my Verizon phone, my cell phone. What authorized investigation gave you the grounds for acquiring my cell phone data?"
