ODNI General Counsel Robert Litt and NSA General Counsel Rajesh De Participate in an Aspen Security Forum Panel Discussion on Liberty and Security

Streamed live on Jul 24, 2014

Panel description, via the Aspen Security Forum:

We are still in the post-9/11 era, but we are also in the post-Edward Snowden era. Citizens’ expectation that the government will protect them from security threats is unchanged, but they are much less willing now than they were in the immediate aftermath of the terror attacks to grant the government virtual carte blanche to do what it thinks is necessary to respond to these threats. What is the “right” balance between security and liberty?

Panelists included:

  • Raj De, General Counsel, National Security Agency
  • Robert Litt, General Counsel, Office of the Director of National Intelligence
  • John Rizzo, Former Deputy & Acting General Counsel, Central Intelligence Agency
  • Scott Charney, Corporate Vice President, Trustworthy Computing, Microsoft

MODERATOR: Greg Miller, National Security Correspondent, The Washington Post
