by | Feb 9, 2018

Author Brian Saady returns to the show to discuss his article “With the Shutdown Over, the Government Can Go Back to Suppressing Your Rights.” Saady explains in laymen’s terms FISA 702, which allows the NSA to monitor any American in communication with foreign targets concerning any foreign intelligence. Saady then turns back the clock and recalls how the history of the national security state has led to the current mass surveillance programs.
