FBI Spy PlanesJune 3, 2015 – Segment 3

The world found out yesterday that the FBI is operating a small air force across the country with low-flying planes using video surveillance technology, under the guise of fictitious companies. And, we look at the new developments with the NSA and the US Freedom Act. This week Congress passed a new measure that removed the authority of the NSA to collect phone records of millions of Americans, and President Obama signed the bill into law last night.

Our panel of guests includes:  Sue Udry, Executive Director of the Defending Dissent Foundation and Acting Director of the Bill of Rights Defense Committee; Jamie McIntyre, National Security Correspondent of Al Jazeera America; and Charles “Cully” Stimson, Manager of the National Security Law Program and Senior Legal Fellow at The Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Institute for National Security and Foreign Policy, The Davis Institute for National Security and Foreign Policy at The Heritage Foundation.
