      The outsourcing of government secrets

      On Thursday, a government watchdog testified that there may have been problems with a security clearance background check conducted on Edward Snowden -- the former federal contractor who disclosed previously secret NSA surveillance programs.

      The leak raised privacy concerns and also begs the question, "Is the federal government outsourcing too much important work?"

      J.D. Gordon, executive director of "Protect America Today," discussed that and other top security issues with Capital Insider.
