Obama announces modest changes to NSA data collection

By Tom Cohen. Jim Acosta and Mariano Castillo

Under pressure by last year's classified leaks of U.S. surveillance, President Barack Obama on Friday unveiled new guidance for intelligence-gathering and reforms intended to balance what he called the nation's vital security needs with concerns over privacy and civil liberties.

In a speech at the Justice Department, Obama sought to defend the need for the government to gather intelligence while responding to protests raised at home and abroad over programs revealed in the leaks by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden.

    The only change needed is to remove the exemption on politicians and rich elites. Honestly I can sacrifice some privacy to know every politician is subject to the same. This stuff is being used properly. A couple captive women freed, tons of child porn abusers nailed, this is the kind of stuff it should be used for, in addition to terrorism.

    I have to be honest I care less about this than I do about the police beating people to death and walking away from it. Those guys betrayed their oath and deserve the death penalty.

    There is no reason Obama should change or compromise NSA's capability of listening people, especially people calling middle east or muslim countries. Obama is here today, gone tomorrow but terrorist threats will be always looming on our country..
