Can anyone list something that Obama has been honest about?
Check it out:
President Barack Obama Frday coupled his new curbs on NSA surveillance with straightforward praise for the intelligence community’s mission, methods and moral purpose.
The praise is noteworthy partly because Obama has repeatedly declared and shown his personal distance from the military and its mission, and because he’s under pressure from his progressive base to dismiss and diminish the intelligence community’s mission.
“In an extraordinarily difficult job, one in which actions are second-guessed, success is unreported, and failure can be catastrophic,” the president said in a speech at the Department of Justice. “The men and women of the intelligence community, including the NSA, consistently follow protocols designed to protect the privacy of ordinary people.”
