Tierney backs effort to halt NSA program


Speaking against the amendment, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., referred to the intelligence leaks, saying “the only result is that those who are engaged in Islamic jihad will have been benefited, and those we seek to protect have not.”

Tierney said the defeat of the amendment Wednesday does not mean an end to the debate on the NSA program; rather, he said, it sent a message that the surveillance program needs reform.

Material from the Associated Press was used in this report.
