Cato Scholars Square Off: Resolved: The Bush NSA Surveillance Program Is Illegal
Since it was revealed recently by the New York Times, the administration’s previously secret NSA surveillance program has brought to the fore a number of novel and complex legal questions. Does the executive branch have inherent authority to conduct the program? What is Congress’s authority to set limits on the executive branch? What role should the courts play? Those and other questions have led to different conclusions even within the Cato Institute. Please join us for a debate between two Cato scholars on this most timely issue.
