    As more revelations come to light about the National Security Agency, we speak to civil-right attorney Abdeen Jabara, co-founder of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee.

    He was involved in a groundbreaking court case in the 1970s that forced the NSA to acknowledge it had been spying on him since 1967.

    At the time of the spying, Jabara was a lawyer in Detroit representing Arab-American clients and people being targeted by the FBI.

    The disclosure was the first time the NSA admitted it had spied on an American.
