OBAMA STANDS DOWN ON NSA
President Obama Fiercely Defends the Military-Industrial Complex
- Obama Speaks; Says Little. Earlier today, President Obama delivered a highly anticipated speech at the Justice Department detailing his “planned reforms” of the controversial NSA snooping programs that gained global attention after former NSA contractor, Edward Snowden, blew the whistle on the gross excesses being committed against the American people — and the world — by the U.S. Intelligence community. Obama, who rightfully chastised then-Pres. Bush over gross government overreach, including warrantless wiretaps, has now firmly solidified his position on U.S. government surveillance efforts. That is, he supports them fully and any attempts at reform will be half-hearted at best. Pro-NSA news outlets, like FoxNews, attempted to make Obama’s speech sound like a death knell to the NSA’s global phone tapping and collection program. (One could only wish.) The most ardent NSA supporters emphasized Obama’s calls for “greater transparency” and more “oversight” as negative developments. However, upon further inspection, Obama’s announced “reforms” appear to be nothing more than an illusion, shifting some power from one hand to the other. America’s military-industrial complex is a cancer that is in its most aggressive and advanced stages. Obama’s weak proposals to slow its progress may fool the naive, but make no mistake: The power wielded by America’s vast intelligence community will never be stopped until an informed citizenry demands real reform. And don’t expect those types of reforms to be seriously volunteered or suggested by those who hold the power.
