Michael Leiter, Executive Vice President for Strategy and Business Development, Leidos

It may be unpopular, but bulk data collection by the National Security Agency is effective. Technology can't replicate what bulk data collection can do for intelligence. But more effective methods could be developed so that the collection and use of data is more targeted and controlled. Those are among the findings from a major study of signal intelligence practices. The study was just completed by the National Academies. It was requested by the President and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence a year ago. Michael Leiter is an executive vice president at Leidos and a member of the committee that authored the report. He joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss the findings.

Officials warn of smaller, faster terror plots

The nation's top homeland security and counter-terrorism officials were on Capitol Hill talking yesterday about new terrorism trends. "Recent events in intelligence show a trend toward smaller faster developing plots rather than larger longer term plots like 9-11," said DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano. Michael Leiter, director of the National Counterterrorism Center, said homegrown plots disrupted in New York, North Carolina, Arkansas, Alaska, Texas and Illinois in the past year demonstrate the urgency of the problem.
