NSA scandal not so ‘phony’ anymore
Obama is the phony one.
Check it out:
President Obama claims he is “comfortable” that the nation’s surveillance program is not being abused, but he’s not saying why, if that is true, he is also proposing significant reforms, including a change to a key provision of the Patriot Act.
The president also apparently no longer considers the National Security Agency scandal “phony,” because he announced the proposals before beginning his first solo news conference in nearly four months Friday.
The administration has been under heavy criticism ever since former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, who was recently granted temporary asylum in Russia, revealed the U.S. government is collecting an enormous amount of data on Americans.
So, the president announced four steps he said will reform the system and restore public trust, while still insisting the government is not spying on Americans.
