Live Thread: Obama to Speak on State of the Sham Wow NSA Surveillance 11 A.M. EST 1/17/14
Friday, January 17, 2014 | Kristinn

Posted on 01/17/2014 7:53:44 AM PST by kristinn

Obama to speak on the NSA surveillance scandal from the Justice Department around 11 a.m. EST today.

C-SPAN's description:

The President delivers remarks at the Department of Justice presenting the outcomes of the Administration's review of U.S. signals intelligence programs. He is expected to focus on steps that increase oversight and transparency while leaving the framework of the surveillance programs in place. In addition, according to officials, the President will turn to Congress for guidance regarding the future of NSA data collection.

The President’s Review Group on Intelligence and Communications Technologies recommended more than 40 suggested changes at the NSA in a wide-ranging report issued this past December. Administration officials say Obama is likely to embrace many of the recommendations.

He only just found out about this as it was reported by the media via Edward Snowden.

Looks like we have time to pop the popcorn and get in the shower.

Reuters WH reporter Jeff Mason via Twitter:

#Obama has not left the White House yet, so NSA speech will be a bit delayed. Motorcade still holding on the WH driveway.

More people will listen to Rush than will listen to the Dork-in-Chief.

And the Rush listeners will get a much closer description of the truth.

Obama is slime.

Pure slime.

The master mold of slime.

Slime central.

CINC Slime.

The Undocumented First Moslem (and very long
term supporter of MB/alQaeda)is our king.

Laws are ONLY what he deems and ONLY for whom he targets.

The King will strengthen the snooping.
The King will protect terrorists, as before.
The King will define this invasion as “transparency”.
The King will oversea and safeguard this, himself.

Congress may authorize a panel for independent “voice”.

And he never knows anything, does he? Didn’t know the extent the NSA was snooping. And even though these are his policies...he’s on TV saying, I will come in and save the day from these politicians. (Limbaugh Theorem)

Is it just a good make up job or did the joker have that ‘mole’ removed from his nasal area?

just wondering...

as for his speech..we all know he does not have this knowledge written for him...he just reads what ever Val get’s the stooges to write..

enough already, he failed to protect the men in Benghazi, and we expect him to protect this Nation????
really
