PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – With the 10th anniversary of 9/11 fresh in our minds, The National Constitution Center hosted a conversation between a Pulitzer prize winning reporter and a local political analyst on our current intelligence community.

Dana Priest, an award winning reporter for the Washington Post and Ed Turzanski, a national security analyst at La Salle University, sat down to talk about the security community which exploded after 9/11, and whether it is working. Priest says 9/11 happened at the beginning of the social media revolution and that has made keeping secrets almost impossible.

“Government employees, who shouldn’t be doing this, but they do it, they bring work home, they put it on their computer which is hooked up to the kids file share software and it can be available to all these people who have nothing better to do than to surf around the web and take out their files,” Priest said.

You can hear the discussion in this CBS Philly ‘Specials Place’ podcast…

Priest says she and co-author William Arkin found nearly all of the information for the book publicly available online, including sources like Monster.com and Linkedin.
