#Fail: Barack Obama's Surveillance Speech

obamaFAIL.jpgWhen he ran for office, Obama promised to restore the rule of law. Instead he has claimed and exercised unchecked executive powers beyond what George Bush used. He refuses to prosecute officials for their use of torture, yet aggressively prosecutes any whistle-blowers who expose war crimes.

"On Friday, President Obama spoke to us about surveillance as though we were precocious children... By observing Obama's condescension, I don't mean to suggest tone was the most objectionable part of the speech. The disinformation should bother the American people most. The weasel words. The impossible-to-believe protestations. The factually inaccurate assertions. -- Conor Friedersdorf, The Atlantic
