Principal at The Chertoff Group and former Director of the NSA and CIA General MICHAEL HAYDEN was on to talk about the supposed changes in metadata collection and explained that although the government will not hold the data, they will actually have more access than ever. The one trade off with the President's new guidelines will be that there will be a broader collection of data, but will be kept for a lesser period of time. On giving up the internet, General Hayden believes that we knew the United States was at some point going to give up stewardship of the internet but giving it over to a U.N. body can have serious repercussions if countries that want to limit the internet are given any power.
