“Modest encroachments: is what Obama calls the NSA spying. He’s lying. NSA admitted in 2009 they had broken the law and intercepted emails and phone calls of US citizens. That’s not modest encroachment.
But, oh yes, they promised to investigate and Attorney General Holder renewed the spying after putting ‘safeguards’ in place. This would be the same Eric Holder who refuses to criminally prosecute big banks because it would be bad for the poor beleaguered banksters so I’m quite sure he will protect us from abuses by the NSA, aren’t you?
