PostSubject: Obama to announce changes to NSA surveillance on Jan. 17   Sun Jan 12, 2014 10:58 pm

President Obama will deliver his highly anticipated speech on reforms to the National Security Agency on Jan. 17, White House press secretary Jay Carney said Friday.

Carney did not elaborate on what the president will say when he outlines his vision for changes to the NSA’s vast surveillance activities. The address comes in the wake of disclosures from documents stolen by former government contractor Edward Snowden.

Obama and his aides have been focused behind the scenes this week on finishing a review of the spy programs and preparing for the president’s address to the nation. Privacy and civil liberties activists, along with top executives of technology company, are calling on the president to adopt sweeping reforms to curb the NSA’s collection of phone call metadata and personal information of online users.

U.S. defense and intelligence agencies have argued that such information is necessary to keep the public safe. But a White House advisory board report issued in December found no evidence that such data had prevented any terrorist attacks.

I wouldn't expect anything to change for the better, no matter what the current regime says.

He will say they are changing things, yet nothing will. That is the thing about intelligence. You can't let the people know how they are getting it. As long as it is used for the right reasons, I don't see the harm in it. It isn't like this hasn't been going on for much longer than we already know. It has more than likely been going on since the era of the phone. Maybe even longer.

This was all set up well before he took over, no reason to expect it to change now.
