Disclosure of secret National Security Agency surveillance programs isn’t the first time the government has been caught spying on Americans or that classified government information has been leaked. The Vietnam War and civil-rights protest movements of the 1960s and 1970s generated plenty of surveillance and secrecy. And leaks. (AP Photo/The Guardian) MANDATORY CREDIT
