    Barack Obama

    Obama intel agency secretly conducted illegal searches on Americans for years

    More than 5 percent, or one out of every 20 searches seeking upstream Internet data on Americans inside the NSA’s so-called Section 702 database violated the safeguards Obama and his intelligence chiefs vowed to follow in 2011, according to one classified internal report reviewed by Circa.

    The Obama administration self-disclosed the problems at a closed-door hearing Oct. 26 before the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that set off alarm. Trump was elected less than two weeks later.

    This collection of Americans’ communications is often called “incidental” because it occurs in the course of surveillance directed at foreign targets. But the “incidental” label is something of a misnomer, because incidental collection is in no way accidental or inadvertent. The government knows in advance that it will acquire Americans’ information in the course of its warrantless surveillance. In fact, intelligence officials advocating for the passage of Section 702 made clear that this was one of the principal purposes of the law.

    I'm more concerned with the NSA and Privacy/Civil Rights in general, regardless of who is President.

    Obama is no longer president. Republicans control the house, the senate and the presidency. So any concerns about lingering fascist policies from the Bush era that were continued by Obama need to be taken up with those currently in power. Because they have the actual ability to change it with their majority. Think they will?

    Well of course not. The surveillance is legal via the Patriot Act, sponsored by republicans, ushered in via bi-partisan support with the majority of dissenters democrats, renewed in 06' by a republican majority in congress, signed by Bush, and extended under Obama with bi-partisan support for its basic tenets.

    This is a desperate attempt to deflect from the unmitigated disaster of the Trump administration with something they are trying to relate to Obama, which is wholly irrelevant presently due to the republican trifecta and congressional majority.

    No offense to my dear fellow posters meant but this is like a small child being punished for playing with matches and lighting part of the garage on fire, saying, "But Johnny threw eggs at old lady Murphy's house last year!"
    "That's true, Jimmy, but what does that have to do with you almost burning down the house today? And I guess you forget that not only did you also throw the eggs, you're the one who came up with the whole idea and encouraged Johnny to do it!"

    Dershowitz on Obama: 'He Hurt America So Badly'

    Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz says that although he and many other liberal Democrats supported President Obama's domestic policies, Obama “will go down in history as one of the worst foreign policy presidents ever.

    Obama promised transparency. But his administration is one of the most secretive

    After early promises to be the most transparent administration in history, this has been one of the most secretive. And in certain ways, one of the most elusive. It’s also been one of the most punitive toward whistleblowers and leakers who want to bring light to wrongdoing they have observed from inside powerful institutions.
