Obama’s Unparalleled Spy State
US President Barack Obama walks down the West Wing Colonnade in the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington, DC, June 5, 2013. Obama called for "meaningful reform" and respect for universal rights in Bahrain, during talks with Crown Prince Salman
Now we know for sure: The Obama administration has presided over the most thorough expansion of the domestic surveillance state of any U.S. presidency. Even as the nation was still absorbing the news, broken by Glenn Greenwald at the Guardian on Wednesday night, that the National Security Agency has been routinely collecting phone call records for millions of Americans, the Washington Post and the Guardian published articles revealing even broader government snooping powers: Since 2007, the NSA and the FBI have had the power to watch nearly every aspect of our online life as well.
The National Security Agency and the FBI are tapping directly into the central servers of nine leading U.S. Internet companies, extracting audio, video, photographs, e-mails, documents and connection logs that enable analysts to track a person’s movements and contacts over time.
The nine companies are Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, PalTalk, AOL, Skype, YouTube, Apple. (PalTalk, according to the Post, “hosted significant traffic during the Arab Spring and in the ongoing Syrian civil war.”)
The program is code-named PRISM, and while it was created during the administration of George W. Bush, the Post reports that it has experienced “exponential growth” under Obama.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

For those of us that love to point and laugh at the idiot Left, this has to be the greatest thing to come out of the Hussein administration (this week). Outstanding work Barry. Keep it up.
"They help us prevent terrorist attacks," Obama said of the surveillance programs. He said he has concluded that prevention is worth the "modest encroachments on privacy."Be Not Afraid.

Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.
