Latest developments let's bring in Bob Cusack managing editor of the -- so the president's going to be meeting with his privacy board.
The nobody's ever heard of before Bob should we take comfort in that.
Well it shows that the administration's playing defense here I mean at present Obama ordered attorney general.
Eric Holder to meet with the media now President Obama meeting with -- civil liberties board which has been riddled with problems over the years -- had.
Couple people have quit because doesn't have a lot of teeth and so maybe Adobe calls to increase the power of that -- that there -- -- -- heard about so.
It shows that the president is trying to play some defense because -- Ed Henry says this does hurt him with his base and that's why his numbers.
I have taken -- hit.
Initiation is making the case that this these programs have helpful -- a lot of attacks but some are skeptical that.
Yeah speaking of attacks we -- told by our director Alexander -- but Alexander the director of the NSA.
That he would be providing the congress evidence of these fifty -- attacks that have been stopped.
As a result of the NSA surveillance programs according to Catherine Herridge.
Those documents that information has not been delivered yet to Capitol Hill he promised them a couple of days ago.
Yet congress is getting antsy with his and they want specifics -- and some of it has to be done a classified setting.
But that's what's frustrating to both Democrats and Republicans -- on a number of requests.
On these programs is that the administration has yet to provide that clarity so I think congress is gonna if they don't get those -- pretty soon they're going to be pressing -- -- In the next several days at a -- early next week it -- It seemed that nothing is sort of going the administration's way on all of this especially these.
Via -- that the the NSA has been keeping information on you know individual Americans and -- -- individual Americans and their communications stuff that we were told the NSA.
Didn't really have access to or had no interest.
-- that's a problem -- that the initiation as is that there is this narrative the Mitch McConnell was saying whether it's NSA are IRS.
Department of Justice -- hearing new details almost every day of what the administration is doing to keep us safe.
But but a lot of people the polls -- don't think that balance that the -- Obama has said he's keeping.
On between privacy and safety is it's just a bit skewed and -- and I think it's going to be a tough to get the new FBI.
Nominee through the senate because this that's going to be a long debate -- and departed in a C.
Possibly another long talk on the senate floor by -- S senators like senator Rand Paul.
Yet he seemed like kind of issue -- James Kobe did -- the FBI director nominee.
But as more and more comes out about him and his involvement in some of these surveillance programs.
-- look a little more precarious form -- Yeah I think you'll get thrilled with this is -- the administration's gonna have to give a lot of information that hasn't congress before it because I think his nomination is gonna be held up not.
-- his track record he's respected -- on both sides the -- But they're gonna seek a lot of information and his nomination is not going to be easy.
Bob -- from the hill Bob thank you except.
