This is Part I of a two part webcast from the Center for Homeland Defense and Security at the Naval Postgraduate School. "Is the NSA [National Security Agency] becoming so overwhelmed with the high volume of information that its response to threats becomes less effective? Is this massive collection of data actually hurting our ability to identify and disrupt would-be terrorist plots? These, and other questions are raised in this two-part series with Mike German (The Brennan Center for Justice and former FBI special agent in domestic terrorism) and Erik Dahl (Assistant Professor, Naval Postgraduate School and Center for Homeland Defense & Security Instructor) as they discuss topics such as the NSA domestic spying program and possible reforms to ensure the rights of ordinary citizens are not being violated." The total duration of part one is 14:07. The duration of part two is 16:14.
