TARGETING DISSENT - Saudi Government Targeting in America

"How the Saudi government may have used Twitter to target dissidents in the U.S." PBS NewsHour 11/7/2019


SUMMARY:  The Department of Justice alleges that the government of Saudi Arabia is surveilling people living in the United States — by leveraging Twitter.  Specifically, the indictment charges that a Saudi official is recruiting Twitter employees to share personal details of critics of the Saudi government, so that those dissidents can be targeted for persecution.  Nick Schifrin talks to Judy Woodruff.
