With more revelations about the NSA’s abilities to spy on us coming out every week, I invited security expert Bruce Schneier to talk about them on my America Weekend show. We discussed:
- the NSA’s decrypting capabilities and its impact on the internet and financial institutions;
- whether there’s any way to keep our home computers and online activities from being monitored;
- how companies are forced to give the NSA back-doors into seemingly-secure software;
- how today’s NSA is a throwback to J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI of the 1950s.
