APTOPIX NSA Surveillance
National Security Agency (NSA) Director Gen. Keith B. Alexander testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, June 18, 2013, before the House Intelligence Committee. Amid revelations that the electronic surveillance agency is sweeping up Americans' phone and Internet records in its quest to investigate terrorist threats, President Barack Obama defended top secret National Security Agency spying programs as legal during an interview yesterday, and called them transparent — even though they are authorized in secret.
