The government is pulling out all the stops to defend its secret surveillance programs. The head of the National Security Agency is expected to release details of cases where the programs have stopped terrorist attacks. Dana Bash reports. And, a vocal critic of the Obama administration is speaking up for the program. A full court Obama Administration press to calm Americans concerns about secrety surveillance programs, led by the Republican House Intelligence chairman. "If you can see just the number of cases where we've actually stopped a plot, I think Americans will come to a different conclusion than all the misleading rhetoric I've heard over the last few weeks," says Rep. Mike Rogers, Intelligence Committee Chairman. Intelligence agenciesarenow working to declassify specifics about dozens of terror plots theNational Security Agency Directortold Congressthe secret programs had helped disrupt. Over the weekend, the government unveiled a teaser. This document claiming phone data collection programs havehelped prevent terror plots, quote,"Here in the homeland and in more than 20 countries around the world." Supporters of the surveillance programs are trying to beat back suggestions the government is listening in on calls in the U.S. "It's against the law for theNSA to record and monitor U.S., Americans' phone calls," said Rep. Rogers. Anothersupporter, Dick Cheney, someone who rarely agress with the Obama White House, does on this. TheGOP vice president on the day of 9/11 says these programs could have prevented the attack. "I guessI'd ask everybody to pauce and don't automatically fold the NSA in with other stuff that's goingon in the Obama Administration because this is a program run by professionals, it's done great work, it has saved lives," Cheney says. But naysayers like Colorado Democrat Mark Udall aren't giving up. "I don't think collecting millions and millions of Americans' phone calls, now, this is the metadata, this is time, place, to whom you direct the calls, is making us any safer," Udall says.
