What was the mood in the White House Situation Room during the mission to capture or kill Osama Bin Laden? Mike Leiter was the Director of the National Counter Terrorism Center under 2 administrations and was tasked with the herculean task of filtering through near infinite data to identify and thwart terrorist attacks against the United States and our allies. We discuss the balance of civil liberties vs security, the intelligence community winning the war of ideas, interagency battles, victories and missteps. Great conversation.
