‘Utterly Deflating’: Twin Cities Residents Don’t Buy Obama’s NSA Promises

President Barack Obama announced intelligence changes in the wake of privacy concerns, but many thought the adjustments were too modest.

In a speech Friday morning, President Barack Obama called for reforms to the National Security Agency’s phone surveillance program. The president said the United State will no longer eavesdrop on the heads of state or government of close friends and allies. He also said the government will not hold onto bulk telephone data.

But that hasn’t reassured privacy advocates—who remain skeptical in the wake of recent news that the NSA implanted spying software in 100,000 computers around the world and collected nearly 200 million text messages daily.

I don't trust anything Obama or Eric Holder tell us. This is the most corrupt administration in USA's history.
