The Circle of HOPE (2018): "'And This Is It?' - What Went Wrong with Surveillance Reform After Snowden" (Download)
Saturday, July 21, 2018: 8:00 pm (Booth): After the passage of the USA Freedom Act, former NSA director Michael Hayden was flabbergasted at the lack of restrictions placed on the NSA. "And this is it after two years? Cool!" What happened? The panel will discuss the failures of the post-Snowden surveillance reform movement and examine the divergences and conflicts between think tanks and grassroots organizations on strategy, tactics, and goals that allowed the surveillance reform sphere to fail to capitalize on the massive public interest in domestic and global spying.
