US President Barack Obama has said he will not spy on EU leaders or conduct economic espionage, but will continue snooping on ordinary US and EU citizens.
He made the pledge in a TV speech on Friday (17 January) in reaction to the Edward Snowden leaks.
Ive made clear to the intelligence community that unless there is a compelling national security purpose, we will not monitor the communications of heads of state and government of our close friends and allies, he said.
We do not collect intelligence to provide a competitive advantage to US companies or US commercial sectors, he added.
He justified the mass-scale collection of information on ordinary US or foreign nationals telephone calls, however.

They must be laughing their a**es off right now. He “promises”. Like that is believable! LOL.
If you like your privacy, you can keep it! Period!
LOL! Bingo! After five years, anyone who still trusts Barry and takes him at his word has to be a total moron.
“If you like your privacy you can keep your privacy.”
Let’s spy on Obama.
Big of him!
This administration is from the Twilight Zone.
The EU faux outrage is laughable. I am certain they are doing it to us. Sadly, I wish they would reveal Obama’s cell phone calls to Reggie and others. Unfortunately, they can use such information to blackmail our “Commander and Chief”, into making seemingly anti-American like decisions.
He first said “Trust Me” and then qualified all his promises with the phrase, “unless there is a compelling national security purpose”. In other words, NSA will continue to have free reign and no one is exempt from coercion, bribery, criminalization and muzzling.
The Kommunist King Barry/Soros/Snowden take down of our NSA limits them to spying ONLY on Americans (not Communist countries or terrorists). Get a clue, Amerika. Even those WITHIN our NSA approve of this, regardless how they ‘act’ about it.
ALL BETTER NOW!
That guy is way too comfortable going to the dark side, if you catch my drift. Look at those expressions. Good grief!
I sleep so much better knowing our nation is
led by a man of integrity who is so respected
by the by the rest of tne world. Somebody hand
me another beer, please.
The natural consequence of this, where Obama is an unrepentant, world class Liar and everybody knows it, is for our allies to start spying on him, other Americans or organizations of American interest. Some of this counter-spying will purposefully be done so heavy handedly, so openly, that it’s not a secret. That will be the Europeans’ way of saying; “YES!! We are now spying on YOU!! Do you have a problem with that, Mr. Obama? Are you planning to send your Doddering VP Joe Biden or Sec of State John Bloviator Kerry over to Washington, so they can Huff and Puff and Blow the UN right off the map? Well, do you?”
