Hollywood Reporter: D'Souza to Take on NSA in Upcoming "America"

Originally posted at The Hollywood Reporter.

“The Obama administration is collecting private information on every American, for reasons that have nothing to do with terrorism,” the conservative filmmaker tells THR.

Along with featuring illegal immigration and liberal commentators who disparage the U.S., Dinesh D’Souza’s new film will take on the National Security Agency, according to a clip obtained exclusively by The Hollywood Reporter.

The surveillance tactics employed by NSA allegedly to thwart terrorists – including intercepting emails in and out of the U.S. and forcing phone companies to supply details of millions of calls – have become extraordinarily controversial, yet few people have witnessed the NSA in action.

With America, which Lionsgate opens wide on July 2, D’Souza seeks to rectify that situation.

Insiders say the NSA scene runs about four minutes long, though the clip embedded below is a mere 47 seconds. In it, D’Souza is seen walking through a mall and, when he stops to pay for some fast-food, the NSA spy network kicks into gear.

“Our coverage is based on a re-creation of what the NSA has actually been doing, while lying to the American people and Congress,” D’Souza tells THR. “Our point is that the Obama administration is collecting private information on every American, for reasons that have nothing to do with terrorism.”

America, the follow-up to the surprise hit, 2016: Obama’s America, is a documentary that answers claims made by some of the most prominent critics of the U.S. How the NSA plays into that premise, D’Souza will not say.

“It is one of our bombshells,” says the conservative filmmaker, who is set to showcase the same clip here during a Friday night appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher.

    Do you think that radical republicans will ever discard their latest hash tag Benghazi attack? Is their a tea party member who is not white who is not male who is younger than 65 and who does not live in Texas?
