On Feb. 28, Benjamin Wittes sat down with Assistant Attorney General Matthew Olsen at the Brookings Institution to discuss the Biden administration's attempt to work with Congress to reauthorize Section 702 of the Foreign Intellligence Surveillance Act before it expires on Dec. 31. They also discussed what would happen if 702 expired, and whether it is even necessary in a world more concerned with great power conflict than with counterterrorism.
