“Privacy and Transparency versus Intelligence Collection Capabilities: What Takes Precedence?" April 20th, 2015
On the first of June, Section 215 of the PATRIOT Act will expire. Should Congress provide a “clean” and unqualified reauthorization of this law, which would permit the government to continue bulk collection of Americans; telephony metadata?

What kind of metrics can and should be used to measure the value of a domestically focused collection program?
