to come to a decisive referendum. the lol the delegates don't think the national a top story this president bob was outlined a few changes to america conducted controversial surveillance tactics which even snake millions of people's phone calls texts and emails around the globe but there was still praise nonetheless for the nsa and its importance to security in them even if he did it make mistakes when opal mine is going to look back about my stack. us president obama was expected to really hide introducing some weeping reforms on nsa surveillance and that did not happen instead the us president defended and water and apply to the job of the national security agency and made it clear that the indiscriminate collection of everyone's met at the gap will continue
5:02 pm
obama so called reforms did not address the prison program which allowed the nsa to monitor everyone's online activity including emails chats web searches and video calls us for they also didn't address the anc's counter in christian activities or any geo location information that the agency may happen for me the complex. so what's changing. here's what's changing obama doesn't want the government to control them at a data storage any more proposing that awful lot of belonging to all americans the move into the hands of a third party. the us president i said that his attorney general eric holder and other intelligence officials will cry more on who should for that medicaid up announcing various options in late march to this essentially means that the scene u s officials who spearheaded an author writes the expansion of america's surveillance practices are now in charge of curbing their own authority. also affected immediately obama says that the nsa one out how to get
5:03 pm
permission from the foreign intelligence surveillance court. notice my side every time he wants to query or access to phone records database that is compiled well we have to keep in mind that i support is this secret for a series of tours of the and records of proceedings are classified. still many critics that say that the nsa is not to have a hard time making requests of the flight support for that. each time it wants to access the ones i've met baby at the u s presidents did insist that the africans high that the nsa is made over the past decade have prevented multiple attacks conceived innocent lives around the world but it's not me i actually released this week by the new american foundation. i actually had concluded the opp a city founded the ball the collection by the nsa. no discernible impact on preventing acts of terror attempt to right now obama can make whatever means he wants but this study and the research is not supporting his words. a coastal new york city that will present a balanced diet

is reforms is concrete and substantial. and therefore will bring a transition the wall and the section to fifteen ball meditative program as it currently exists. presidents much anticipated speech to the mcp pushing for that crucial intelligence reforms that some of this mission to find out what activist blogger david swanson still think that obama spoke of both the joys that life. other things to do something with this would you agree that ofcom has an essay or a full busy day to enter the date substantial as people they own all. i would not i wouldn't call it a reform i would call it the ongoing normalization of the outrageous policy of violating the fourth amendment on an enormous scale. it is sucking up data on the people who for whom there is no probable cause and no warrant has been issued. and and then claiming that we need to trust them we need to trust them not to abuse those powers despite
5:05 pm
the fact that they have been abusing them and have been lying to us about this time and time it has are prosecuting of whistleblowers including the whistleblower who can build the president to hold this so called debates in which there was no debate partner and death and which he would not have killed otherwise but he claims it's been a great step forward. i don't see a tight i think there's a parallel here and as many people immediately pointed out to to the closure of guantanamo side. death camp. you know the president says he'd like to reform that the abuses of the nsa but he doesn't propose to to do it. what you think he chose to focus so much on file and data collection is the main problem is that a lot more information being collected lot of the places of the formatting that. there is that we are learning more as the every week goes by and about what they're collecting in terms of text messages and e mails sent and to mitigate
5:06 pm
that. and it's its voluminous and the president says is not can it mean that anything has been done wrong. it is not proposing to stop doing it is not suggesting we restore the fourth amendments to the constitution. he's suggesting that this will continue and it will be reforms perhaps in part some day and possibly in part by having private corporations be paid our money to own our data against our rights. or only partially doing that and partially having the government continue with its high and we may or may not be told what the solution ends up being it but we cannot trust these people is a story in the news today about numerous u s government officials with security clearance. who would like to have edward snowden murder and we are supposed to trust these people will know if there were some percentage of his papers and effects in violation. the sky looked a little but a bright new city with the most pessimistic
