Description

A former senior counter-terrorism official has said that existing surveillance capabilities are creating “the potential for a police state.” Kate Martin (Director, Center for National Security Studies) will address whether and how such capabilities can be reconciled with the Constitution’s prohibition against unreasonable searches and seizures, its protections for freedom of speech and religion, as well as the demands of an open government in a democracy.
