James Bamford on the Henry A. Wallace National Security Forum

GUEST: James Bamford, Documentary Producer at PBS and author of several books including The Shadow Factory: the Ultra-Secret NSA from 9/11 to the Eavesdropping on America.

As part of an on-going series of interviews for the Henry A. Wallace National Security Forum, we turn today to James Bamford to explore how the NSA got so powerful. The NSA began in absolute secrecy and has remained that way most of it’s life. How does an institution like exist within the framework of an open society and is it a threat to the very values it claims to be protecting?

Produced by Brave New Films, The Henry A. Wallace National Security Forum features Sonali Kolhatkar’s interviews with a series of academics, journalists, and activists. Henry A. Wallace was the 33rd Vice-President of the United States and served under Franklin D. Roosevelt during WW II. He ran for the presidency on the Progressive Party ticket in 1948 and was known as the champion of the “common man.”
