Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said Wednesday that the National Security Agency’s bulk collection of Americans’ telephone calls is a key part of keeping the nation safe.
Mr. Bush, speaking at The Chicago Council on Global Affairs, said the surveillance program is one of the tools that is needed to thwart potential terrorist attacks on American soil.
“These attacks require response on many levels, but most of all we should focus on preventing them,” Mr. Bush said. “That requires responsible intelligence gathering and analyses, including the NSA metadata program, which contributes to awareness of potential terror cells and interdiction efforts on a global scale.”
