Comments on: On NSA, Obama still says ‘trust me’ http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2014/01/17/on-nsa-obama-still-says-trust-me/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: brotherkenny4 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2014/01/17/on-nsa-obama-still-says-trust-me/#comment-83427 Wed, 22 Jan 2014 18:43:16 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=27407#comment-83427 We could all just join the KGB/NSA in spying on our neighbors and locking them into prisons and then wait around for the fall of our country and it’s government as no one will have any reason to work or care since merit and capability will no longer matter. Maybe they can brainwash your children into spying on you. I don’t suppose any of you keep things from your children now right? Anyway, life was probably better if you were the sadistic KGB person rather than the victim of their lies and cruelty, so join the NSA and torture your neighbors, it will be much better than being the victim.

Then of course we have to contend with the probable scenario that the NSA will continue to undermine our privacy only with far more discretion. That has and will always be an issue.

This is false. The NSA always has been established as a highly secret intelligence agency that is protected by special statutes. Never even one day it NSA’s life has it be a “traditionally civilian intelligence agency” as this uninformed author writes. The President’s speech went a long way in spelling out the dimensions of the problem, and he was more open than any country in the world, and than any President has been in US history. The criticism in this article is unwarranted, and crooked.

More proposals – ho-hum. More promises – ho-hum. We have fallen for the rhetoric in the past, but now we want definite action and not weak proposals and false promises.

Is it legal? Do we need it? Dancing around and spitting “laws” on a daily basis isn’t going to change anything. At this stage the damage is done and there’s nothing he could do to “fix,” particularly when he doesn’t even have a position. If he has extra energy, playing some more golf in Hawaii.

Actually Obama says they are still going to capture the data – just a different data holder – which is still illegal.

His track record on veracity is not even marginal, in my opinion. The NSA document is a very complex document with caveats, and will require study to see if it says anything of substance at all, and if it adequately addresses the concerns of the public at large. Many agencies in this administration have been run unfettered for so long, I find it hard to believe their inertia will change course overnight, or just because Junior High Obama said so.
