Matt Apuzzo And Adam Goldman: "Enemies Within"

Americans have long debated how much liberty is worth giving up for the sake of security. The Cold War, Vietnam War and Watergate all hold cautionary tales about unchecked government surveillance power. Then 9/11 happened. Suddenly, many Americans were willing to agree to whatever was deemed necessary to prevent another terrorist attack on U.S. soil. A new book by two investigative reporters reignites the debate.

Guest host Tom Gjelten talks with the authors about the reach of government surveillance in the U.S.
