Rand Paul

Criticizes Obama over NSA

20 Mar, 2014

Paul criticizes President Obama and other government leaders over recent surveillance disclosures in a speech at the University of California, Berkeley. He speaks for 30 minutes on what he perceives to be abuses of government spy programs and a lack of oversight of the National Security Agency.

I find it ironic that the first African-American president has without compunction allowed this vast exercise of raw power by the NSA.

Paul notes that other black heroes like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. were targets of illegal government spying and calls for the creation of a bipartisan congressional committee to address Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s allegations the CIA searched Senate computers.
