National Security Agency chief Gen. Keith Alexander will answer senators’ questions about the agency’s domestic surveillance program behind closed doors on Thursday.
He was expected to face senators on Wednesday but, because his answers require the disclosure of sensitive details about NSA operations, the meeting will no longer be public.
The hearing — led by Democratic Sen. Barbara Mikuslki, chairwoman of the Senate Appropriations Homeland Security Committee — was meant to update the appropriations committee on cybersecurity efforts.
