General Keith Alexander, head of the NSA, gave the keynote speech at the Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas where he addressed national security and detailed what information the NSA collects and how it analyzes the data. According to a new report, The National Security Agency (NSA) has a secret program that allows it to see just about everything a person does on the Internet.NSA leaker Edward Snowden, has reportedly leaked to The Guardian, new details on a high-powered, secret program run by the U.S. government, called X-Keyscore. The Guardian, which obtained the slides of a presentation the NSA reportedly gave to employees, claims that the program is the "widest-reaching" intelligence system. President Barack Obama's national security team argued to keep its sweeping domestic surveillance powers intact, even as it acknowledged some limitations appear inevitable. Facing unexpectedly harsh opposition from both parties over its once-secret program capable of sweeping up the phone records of every American, the Obama administration said it wanted to work with lawmakers who seemed intent on putting limits on that authority.
