President Barack Obama will meet on Friday with members of a privacy oversight watchdog board to try to reassure Americans rattled by revelations of the U.S. government’s vast monitoring of phone and Internet data.


Medine told Reuters on Wednesday the board was aiming to hold a public event around July 9 to get legal insight from experts, academics and advocates.

“Based on what we’ve learned so far, the board believes further questions are warranted,” said Medine, who previously was a partner at the law firm WilmerHale and served as an associate director at the Federal Trade Commission.

Read more on Reuters. Hopefully the members of the board have had a chance to read the documents released yesterday by The Guardian.
