Today we feature one of Edward Snowden’s lawyers – JAMEEL JAFFER, he heads the ACLU’s Center for Democracy, which houses the organization’s work on national security, free speech, privacy, human rights, and technology. He went to court to challenge the Patriot Act’s “national security letter” provision, the Bush administration’s warrantless wiretapping program, and the National Security Agency’s call-tracking program. He’s the guy who won the release of the Bush administration’s “torture memos.”
