Earlier today, Heritage hosted the Directors of the DNI, NSA, and FBI to discuss America’s security.
Specifically, they discussed the reauthorization of Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) which provides invaluable information on non-U.S. people oversees. Some estimates say that Section 702 is responsible for more than 25 percent of all current intelligence collected.
The program is so crucial to America’s security that Congress should reauthorize Section 702 in its current form before the deadline at the end of this year.

What are the top three security threats facing our nation today and what do you think should be done to solve them?
The Obama administration created a nuclear deal that failed to moderate Iran’s aggressive foreign policy.
Now, the Trump Administration must decide whether to certify Iran’s compliance with that deal. They have until October 15 to make a decision.
Heritage has been pushing to decertify the Iran deal for years and has provided the research needed to prove this is the right decision.
On Thursday, Heritage’s Senior Research Fellow for Middle Eastern Affairs James Phillips hosted an event titled “U.S. Iran Policy: What Next?” to examine what needs to happen to the Iran deal.
The event consisted of a panel discussion where Heritage and national security experts agreed that in order to hold Iran accountable for its aggression and hostility and block its path to a nuclear weapon, the Iran nuclear deal must be de-certified.
Watch the full event below:
Phillips has been providing the key research and arguments for why the Iran Deal needs to be de-certified for years. He recently wrote a report titled “Time to Decertify the Iran Nuclear Agreement”, where he further defined why we need to end the Iran Deal. He wrote:
“It is increasingly difficult to argue that it is vital to the national security interest of the United States to continue granting billions of dollars of sanctions relief that will strengthen a rogue regime that leads chants of “Death to America”; exports terrorism; threatens U.S. allies; harasses U.S. Navy warships in the Persian Gulf; defies U.N. Security Council Resolutions on ballistic missile tests, arms imports, and arms exports; and arrests innocent American citizens to hold as hostages.”
Soon, the Trump Administration will reveal the conclusions reached in its Iran policy review. Those conclusions will determine the decision made on October 15.
How do you think the Administration should deal with the flawed nuclear agreement?
