FBI Whistleblower to Speak Out


December 28, 2007, WASHINGTON, D.C. - The American Library Association has announced that FBI whistleblower Bassem Youssef will speak at it’s winter conference in Philadelphia on Saturday, January 12th. Mr. Youssef is the Chief of the FBI’s Communications Analysis Unit (CAU), and he is responsible for administering two highly controversial warrantless search programs created under the provisions of the USA PATRIOT ACT, including the “National Security Letters” program which was reported widely earlier this year.

Mr. Youssef is expected to speak about failures in the FBI’s Counterterrorism program, and his experiences as a whistleblower.

The ALA has long been a champion for civil liberties, privacy, and intellectual freedom.
