Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) joined Bill O’Reilly tonight to discuss the government’s PRISM program. Paul said the bigger question is whether or not your records are protected when you give them to a third party.
Judge Andrew Napolitano reacted to the ACLU’s lawsuit against the government over the NSA’s surveillance program, saying it's "right on the mark."
The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a lawsuit against the governement claiming that the NSA’s surveillance program is a “gross infringement of our freedoms.”
Bill O’Reilly and Juan Williams sparred over the NSA’s program that collects Internet and phone data. Williams charged that O’Reilly doesn’t trust the government. “If you don’t trust used car dealers, you don’t trust morticians, you don’t trust journalists, okay, I understand it. But here you’re saying not only don’t you trust President Obama, you don’t trust the people who, Republican or Democrat, […] run these programs.”
Bill O’Reilly weighed in on the government’s surveillance program that’s causing quite a controversy. An American named Edward Snowden claims he leaked information regarding the NSA’s program that tracks Americans’ Internet data and phone records. People on the right and the left and everywhere in between are voicing their opinions. So where does the Factor host stand?
Judge Andrew Napolitano believes NSA leaker Edward Snowden is an American hero.
Edward Snowden, a 29-year-old computer technician, has been identified as the source of a massive leak of classified NSA documents related to the U.S. surveillance program.
Lawmakers across both parties are voicing their concerns over the many moving parts of the recent revelations that the NSA collected phone and computer data of millions of Americans. Over the weekend, the man responsible for the controversial data-mining leak was identified and told his story to the UK's The Guardian in a video interview. Twenty-nine-year-old Edward Snowden remains hunkered down in a Hong Kong hotel room, where he fled after deciding to reveal what he knew about covert operations at the government agency where he worked.
If there's one question being asked across all forms of media today, however, it is this: is Edward Snowden a hero, or a traitor?
The Guardian newspaper revealed Edward Snowden as the source behind the leaks on the United States’ surveillance program. The British newspaper said Snowden is a 29-year-old American who works as a contractor at the National Security Agency, which is collecting the phone and computer data of millions of Americans. He’s also a former CIA employee.
The entire House of Representatives will be briefed behind closed doors this Tuesday on the NSA’s surveillance program. One of the lawmakers invited to attend is New York Congressman Peter King (R). He said today on America’s News HQ that he supports the president on this matter. “Let’s never forget what happened on September 11. I went to too many wakes and funerals. That’s why I am supporting what the president is attempting to do here.”
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), a staunch defender of civil liberties, suggested on Fox News Sunday that the government’s surveillance program goes too far. Paul, who’s a member of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, said, “We’re not talking about going after a terrorist – I’m all for that. Get a warrant; go after a terrorist or a murderer or a rapist. But don’t troll through a billion phone records every day.”
Fox News host Neil Cavuto went off on guest Julian Epstein during a fervent discussion on the NSA’s tracking of Americans' Internet data and phone records for refusing to acknowledge that this is part of a larger pattern.
