Mike Rogers: NSA Program Helped Stop a Terrorist Attack in the U.S. in 'the Last Few Years'

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) says that the National Security Agency program tracking Verizon telephone records helped thwart a “significant domestic terrorist attack” in the United States “within the last few years.”

Rogers declined to share more information on the nature of the attack, saying the committee was working to declassify information on the plot so that more information may be shared publicly.

His remarks came during a news conference Thursday on Capitol Hill.
