Obama meets new five-member panel reviewing surveillance programs
WASHINGTON Aug 27 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama met on Tuesday with a new five-member panel he appointed to review the privacy issues involved with U.S. government surveillance programs after a public outcry about privacy in the wake of leaks by a former spy agency contractor.
The group will present interim findings in 60 days to the Director of National Intelligence, and later a final report and recommendations to Obama, the White House said. (Reporting by Roberta Rampton; Editing by Eric Walsh)
