The Snowden leaks of classified information have highlighted a number of important issues, including the lawfulness of certain surveillance programs of the National Security Agency, the proper balance between national security and privacy/civil liberties, and the impact the leaks have had on U.S. foreign relations and the intelligence community. This panel discussion addresses these issues with a general focus on the impact that the Snowden disclosures have had on the United States and its constitutional framework.
Panelists include Amy Gaudion (Penn State Dickinson School of Law), Bert Tussing, (Center for Strategic Leadership and Development, U.S. Army War College), Anthony Williams (Dickinson College) and moderator Harry Pohlman (Dickinson College).
