Civil Liberties Groups See Holes In Cyber Defense Bill

The House has approved a bill designed to improve the nation's defenses against cyber attacks by foreign governments or terrorists.

Even though it passed the House with significant support from Democrats, the White House is threatening a veto. NPR's Steve Henn reports.
