Even Liberals Are Calling Obama’s NSA Defense ‘Pathetic’
The New York Times Shreds The Obama Administration As ‘Pathetic’ On NSA Spying
OCT. 29, 2013
The New York Times editorial board ripped the Obama administration as “pathetic” in its defenses and assurances on revelations about National Security Agency spying on foreign leaders and citizens of close world allies.
President Barack Obama wouldn’t discuss on Monday his knowledge of the classified programs, but the White House and Democratic senators pledged that a review of all intelligence programs was ongoing.
“What we’ve seen over the last several years is their capacities continue to develop and expand, and that’s why I’m initiating now a review to make sure that what they’re able to do doesn’t necessarily mean what they should be doing,” Obama told Fusion’s Jorge Ramos.
