Obama’s NSA Speech: What He Said, What He Didn’t Say & What He Should Have Said
A conversation with Hanni Fakhoury - Staff Attorney, Electronic Frontier Foundation
It has been six months since Edward Snowden ignited a fierce international debate over the scope and nature of the National Security Agency’s massive electronic eavesdropping programs. The debate has been especially heated in the US, where citizens and residents learned that the data from practically every telephone call is being intercepted and stored by the NSA.
The public outcry was great enough to force President Obama to address the controversy in a much-touted policy speech on January 17. In this month’s forum, we’ll examine Obama’s response in detail.
