This is BS....and another letdown by Obama....proving once again that those of us on the left were absolutely right that Obama is nothing more than a left-leaning moderate. There are somethings that Obama has done that I agree with, there are others that I vehemently disagree with. This is one of them.
The government should be required to get a warrant before engaging in spying on citizens of this country....period. We require that of the police, why should we not require it of the government?
I don't even think that getting a warrant after the fact is good enough....but Bush/Obama apparently don't believe the Constitution requires that.
The Constitution requires due process and accountability....and we as citizens should demand that of our government.
