Must watch! This is scary. We had come to expect stuff like this from G. W. Bush, but not Obama. He did vote for the renewal of the KGB act, so we can’t expect too much.
From an EFF post:
Again, the gulf between Candidate Obama and President Obama is striking. As a candidate, Obama ran promising a new era of government transparency and accountability, an end to the Bush DOJ's radical theories of executive power, and reform of the PATRIOT Act. But, this week, Obama's own Department Of Justice has argued that, under the PATRIOT Act, the government shall be entirely unaccountable for surveilling Americans in violation of its own laws. This isn't change we can believe in. This is change for the worse.
We need a government that isn’t constantly trying to get around the Constitution.
