    I think it's more of a, "red line", kinda call.

    These guys have zero credibility.

    What agency or director has ever told a sitting U.S. President to "go pound sand"?

    They stick together, though and do a damn good job of pushing their propaganda.

    He absolutely could since he's Commander in Chief and the N.S.A. falls under DOD authority. Even if the N.S.A. didn't fall under DOD control, the President is the highest executive power in the United States.

    Obama is too concerned with issuing orders that are outside his realm of authority.

    Take a fair criticism about Obama being able to pretty much do this himself already and go full retard with it...

    If we had a real leader, he would exert his power appropriately, but...
