Brad Wiegmann, deputy assistant attorney general of the Justice Department’s National Security Division, describes the work of the DOJ in national security. He says that public disclosure of secret information should not be decided by single individuals, such as Edward Snowden.
“You can’t have a system where everyone gets to decide for themselves about whether or not something should be disclosed.”
Wiegmann spoke on Oct. 31 during the 23rd Annual Review of the Field of National Security Law, hosted by the ABA Standing Committee on Law and National Security.
