VIDEO - NSA Whistleblower Testimony Alleges Widespread Domestic Spying




Video in Streaming Flash format...


On February 14th, a former NSA employee, Russell Tice, testified before the House Government Reform Subcommittee on National Security, Emerging Threats and International Relations. Tice told the committee that he was concerned that undisclosed domestic spying programs were far more widespread than the recently exposed Bush/NSA warrantless wiretap program.

One or more still classified "Special Access" surveillance program may be monitoring the communications of "millions of Americans". While Tice could not share classified details of the program(s), he believes that the Constitution and FISA laws are being violated.

This UPI article has more information about the widespread domestic surveillance programs.
