GEORGE NOORY IN LAS VEGAS: Get tickets now -- be there June 9!

(Las Vegas, NV)  —  Congressman Joe Heck is defending the government’s controversial surveillance programs.

The Nevada Republican, who sits on the House Intelligence Committee, tells the “Las Vegas Review-Journal” his panel holds secured briefings to any member of Congress who wants to know how the NSA monitors phone calls and the Internet.

Heck says lawmakers should attend the briefings and “stop complaining about the letters that they write that don’t give them access.”

Heck also defended the government’s process for whistleblowers who want to report illegal activity.
