Wayne Brittenden's Counterpoint

From Sunday Morning, 11:40 am on 16 June 2013

Reports that a US secret court ordered the Verizon phone company to hand over to the National Security Agency millions of phone records, and subsequent revelations that the agency taps directly into the servers of nine internet firms has astonished and angered many governments and the international public. Wayne looks at some of the implications and Chris follows up with Christopher Pyle, a US professor of constitutional law, and Andrew Levine, formerly a Professor of Political Philosophy who has written many books and articles in that field, and also contributed to the recent publication,  Barak Obama and the Politics of Illusion, that is related to the website Counterpunch.
