Obama’s NSA speech didn’t do much to alleviate eavesdropping concerns

Did you see Obama’s NSA speech yesterday? As far as eavesdropping concerns go, this didn’t help much:

While the president recognized the surveillance program has grown in recent years, he also strongly defended those who work in the intelligence community, saying they do not abuse power. “After all,” he said, “the folks at NSA and other intelligence agencies are our neighbors and our friends.”

So next time the “neighbor” stops by to borrow a cup of sugar, it might just be to install a bugging device? Thanks Obama.

Obama opened his speech justifying NSA programs by invoking Paul Revere, which was an epic fail. Revere spied on the British — which at that time was the government.
