    Bush’s NSA Director: Obama Has Been More Transparent On Surveillance Than We Were (VI

    Jake Tapper on CNN's The Lead asks Gen. Michael Hayden questions about the program as it is today versus under the Bush Administration. Video at the link below.


    The man who served as the director of the National Security Agency under former President George W. Bush said Wednesday that President Barack Obama has been more transparent about top secret surveillance programs than his predecessor.
    Gen. Michael Hayden, former NSA director, praised Obama for resuming those programs.


    "We should just take a sense of satisfaction that what we were doing, once candidate Obama became President Obama, he saw that these were of great value and frankly, were being very carefully done," Hayden told CNN. "National security looks a little different from the Oval Office than it does from a hotel room in Iowa."
    Hayden applauded Obama for making the details of the NSA's data collection available to members of Congress.


    "Frankly, the Obama administration was more transparent about this effort than we were in the Bush administration," Hayden said. "I mean, they made this meta data collection activity available to all the members of Congress. Not just all the members of the intelligence committees."

    Which is why it took the largest leak in American history to find out about all the surveillance that was going on?

    Sorry Pete I really don't follow here.

    As a resident liberal I would like to think that Obama has handled this better, and thats all well and good. It's just when Lindsey-what's-his-face and McCain are defending Obama... then I am not sure.

    I just think since 9/11 we've become so afraid that we're relinquishing people's privacy to get a few more "silent victories" in the intelligence sector.

    Some people with say anything, ANYTHING AT ALL to save their guy. No self-respect.

    See, the problem with the surveillance isn't whether you tell me about it.

    It's the fact that you are doing it in the first place.
