Obama meets new five-member panel reviewing surveillance programs

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama met on Tuesday with a new five-member panel he appointed to review the privacy issues involved with U.S. government surveillance programs after a public outcry about privacy in the wake of leaks by a former spy agency contractor.

The group will present interim findings in 60 days to the Director of National Intelligence, and later a final report and recommendations to Obama, the White House said.
