Ahead of next week’s continuation of the Georgetown Law Surveillance & Foreign Intelligence Gathering in the US panel series, we’re posting video of the first of three panels on the subject, a September 24th discussion of the Church Committee and the original FISA legislation. Senator Leahy — co-author of the USA Freedom Act — keynoted the event; Church Committee veterans Senator Gary Hart, former Vice President Walter Mondale, Committee Staff Director William Miller, and Dr. Loch Johnson (Assistant to Senator Church) formed the panel.
Next Tuesday’s event — “The Current State of Play” — will run from 9:30am to noon at Georgetown Law’s Hart auditorium (600 New Jersey Avenue, NW). It will feature the other author of the USA Freedom Act, Representative Jim Sensenbrenner, as keynote speaker, as well as panelists Jameel Jaffer (ACLU), Robert Litt (DNI), Matthew Olsen (ex-NSA), and Marc Rotenberg (EPIC).
