Where Does the President Stand on NSA Reform? 

Edward Snowden’s disclosures about the NSA’s spying programs have ignited a passionate, nationwide debate about privacy and surveillance. Polls show that most Americans believe the government has gone too far in monitoring the communications of innocent people, and calls for change are being sounded throughout the halls of Congress and by President Barack Obama’s own hand-picked review board. But the president is singing a slightly different tune. On Friday, January 17, he delivered a long-awaited speech to outline the reforms he is willing to make to the NSA programs. Unfortunately, those reforms don’t go far enough. Check out the table below to see how the president’s reforms match up to the views of his own surveillance review board, and to the USA FREEDOM Act, the leading congressional proposal to rein in NSA spying.

What we need: an end to bulk collection of our records; an end to dragnet surveillance of our calls and emails; an end to excessive government secrecy; and structural reforms.
