The World Tackles More on the NSA for 2-14-14

PRI's The World - with Host Marco Werman  

Happy Valentines Day from The World newsroom!

News comes today that a civilian employee at the NSA was disciplined and later resigned after admitting he gave Edward Snowden encryption information that allowed Snowden to gain access to files he later leaked. Marco catches up on the story with Luke Harding, a writer with the Guardian newspaper and author of the new book "The Snowden Files."

Also today, how young people here in the US are responding to all the revelations about NSA surveillance.  Zeynep Tufekci is our go to person on society and tech -- she says digital natives are more concerned with surveillance by peers, parents, coaches and companies than they are about government spying. "The state is an abstraction to them," she says. Marco chats with her about the implications.

Plus this year's high-tech bobsled designs, why Russians don't like ice, and the love notes Israelis leave for the parking police on their car windshields. Happy Valentine's Day!
