Obama promises changes after latest NSA snooping disclosure

Washington (CNN) - Under fire about disclosures of broad National Security Agency snooping on global leaders, President Barack Obama is offering a two-pronged response: You do it, too, and we'll make some changes.

Thousands of documents leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden have portrayed the vast reach of U.S. surveillance activities, keeping tabs not only on U.S. call data but also global Internet and e-mail traffic.

    Nothing is going to change. The spying is for POLITICAL purposes, and not security. Obama will never change that.......he lives and breathes the political.........almost entirely.

    President Barack Obama is offering a two-pronged response: "You do it, too" He sounds and acts like a teenage boy. It's frightening that he's in this powerful position.

    If the NSA wants my phone records, my Facebook activity or my Google searches....they need to serve ME a search warrant. They shouldn't be going directly to those Company's for them.

    At least terrorists know that they cannot use the internet to communicate with and recruit like- minded people from around the world. So this counts as a disruption to their activities.
