Does Domestic Spying Keep The U.S. Safe?

Smile, you're on NSA's camera! It starts when you're are afraid. Big brother is here to calm your fears and protect you from the big bad boogie men!

The recent leaks about National Security Agency surveillance programs have renewed the debate over the balance between national security and civil liberties. Four people debated the motion "Spy On Me, I'd Rather Be Safe."

For The Motion: Stewart Baker, Richard Falkenrath, Against The Motion: David Cole, Michael German

Before the debate, the audience in Washington, D.C., voted 26 percent in favor of the motion and 41 percent against, with 33 percent undecided. After the debate, 29 percent agreed with the motion "Spy On Me, I'd Rather Be Safe," and 62 percent disagreed — making the side arguing against the motion the winners.
