The members of a surveillance review panel will meet with privacy advocates and officials from technology companies in two separate meetings on Monday, The Hill has learned.
President Obama has tasked the panel with reviewing the National Security Agency's controversial surveillance programs and making recommendations for changes. He has emphasized that the group of "high-level outside experts" will conduct an "independent" review.
The members of the review panel are: Michael Morell, a former CIA official; Richard Clarke, a former counterterrorism official; Cass Sunstein, a law professor and former regulatory official; Peter Swire, a former privacy official; and Geoffrey Stone, a constitutional law professor.
The list of privacy activists and technology officials who will attend Monday's meetings has not been made public.
