NSA BAIT AND SWITCH ON OBAMA
Coverage of the Edward Snowden passport petition campaign; NSA 'reform' analysis, Obama's impending 90-day renewal of FISA/FISC, and midterm election motives for Obama's sudden attempt to quell public opposition to being surveilled en masse by the NSA.
We examine the latest developments regarding the NSA, bulk phone surveillance, Congressional collaboration, Presidential feints, and fake "reforms" of the ongoing surveillance regime -- including Obama's plan to privatize bulk phone records, and potentially INCREASE NSA cellphone surveillance.
AMONG TODAY'S VOICES:
Former Presidential daily briefer and CIA analyst RAY McGOVERN, FBI whistleblower COLEEN ROWLEY, and RootsAction founder NORMAN SOLOMON, speaking overnight at a press conference petitioning Attorney General ERIC HOLDER and State Secretary JOHN KERRY (who refused delivery) for the return of the passport of NSA whistleblower and Nobel nominee EDWARD SNOWDEN -- whom we shall also hear -- along with Senate Iintelligence Committee chair and Church committee pioneer PATRICK LEAHY of Vermont.
