National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden says he has no regrets about revealing the agency's mass surveillance program.
Surveillance. Online privacy. Robots. Food processing. Wearable computers. To get a sense of what's on the minds of the tech industry's thinkers, leaders and tinkerers, it's a good idea to head to Austin, Texas, rather than Silicon Valley this time of the year.
Putting former NSA contractor Edward Snowden on trial for leaking U.S. surveillance information could be an awkward public spectacle for the Obama administration.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Two congressmen say a classified Pentagon report on former National Security Agency systems analyst Edward Snowden asserts that most of the documents he took concerned current military operations.
The bridge scandal has exacted a mighty hefty toll on New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, and it has galvanized his friends, his foes and the press while melodrama and political peril hang in the balance.
The national security state that has expanded in response to the Sept. 11 attacks will not shrink in the near future, even though al Qaeda's top leadership has been decimated and the U.S. government faces extreme budget pressures.
As the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks approaches, much of President Obama's counterterrorism policies and his understanding of executive power closely hew to the last administration, which he criticized as a candidate for the White House.
A sharply divided federal appeals court on Wednesday threw out a lawsuit challenging a controversial post-Sept. 11 CIA program that flew terrorism suspects to secret prisons.
A former CIA officer accused of revving an electric drill near the head of an imprisoned terror suspect has returned to U.S. intelligence as a contractor, training CIA operatives after leaving the agency, the Associated Press has learned.
After being detained for carrying $4,700 through airport security, an angry aide to Rep. Ron Paul caused the Transportation Security Administration quietly changing its rules.
He said all the government would have to prove is that Snowden took national defense information and gave it to someone who wasn't allowed to receive it.
"The government doesn't have to prove that the disclosures were harmful to the country. The defendant can't defend himself on basis that documents shouldn't have been classified ... and lower courts have upheld that," Wizner said.
