Will Congress Reform The NSA

President Barack Obama

The NSA scandal regarding revelations of the agency's illegal PRISM program that has been spying on Americans in violation of the U.S. Constitution, has been one of the top stories of the year. Former NSA contractor Edward Snowden provided the nation and world with proof of the illegal program's existence as he rightly stated it is violating the Constitution.

Members of Congress have spoken out against PRISM, as well as a U.S. Circuit Court judge. Some in Congress have promised reforms, but will they truly bring them into being or become fearful of the NSA, CIA, FBI and White House coming after them in surreptitious ways.
