It’s not just your right it is your responsibility to be informed as an American! It’s all starting to unravel for the Obama administration and it was only a matter of time until it’s deception and unscrupulous behavior were uncovered!
A new Circa report has revealed that previously top secret documents show that President Barack Obama for years.
These classified documents show that under former President Barack Obama, the National Security Agency (NSA) routinely violated American privacy protections while scouring through overseas intercepts and failed to disclose the extent of the problems until the final days before Donald Trump was elected president last fall.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) claim these newly disclosed violations rank as some of the most serious to ever be documented.
Neema Singh Guliani, the ACLU’s legislative counsel in Washington, said: “I think what this emphasizes is the shocking lack of oversight of these programs.”
The normally supportive court censured administration officials, saying the failure to disclose the extent of the violations earlier amounted to an “institutional lack of candor” and that the improper searches constituted a “very serious Fourth Amendment issue,” according to a recently unsealed court document dated April 26, 2017.
Circa has reported that there was a three-fold increase in NSA data searches about Americans and a rise in the unmasking of U.S. person’s identities in intelligence reports after Obama loosened the privacy rules in 2011.
Officials like former National Security Adviser Susan Rice have argued their activities were legal under the so-called minimization rule changes Obama made, and that the intelligence agencies were strictly monitored to avoid abuses.
Earlier this month, Senator Rand Paul claimed that he and another Senator may have been under surveillance by the former administration.
“I know one other senator who’s already confided to me that he was surveilled by the Obama administration, including his phone calls,” Paul told Fox News.
This Wednesday, speaking on Fox News he said there was an apparent effort under the Obama Administration to increase the number of unmaskings of Americans.
Paul said: “If we determine this to be true, this is an enormous abuse of power/ This will dwarf all other stories.” There are hundreds and hundreds of people”: Paul added.
Leftist American Civil Liberties Union has also blasted the report, with the ACLU’s legislative counsel Neema Singh Guliani stating: “I think what this emphasizes is the shocking lack of oversight of these programs. You have these problems going on for years that only come to the attention of the court late in the game and then it takes additional years to change its practices.”
She continued, “I think it does call into question all those defenses that we kept hearing, that we always have a robust oversight structure and we have a culture of adherence to privacy standards. And the headline now is they actually haven’t been in compliance for years and the FISA court itself says in its opinion is that the NSA suffers from a culture of a lack of candor.”
It is so obvious that Obama violated every law in the book. If we are still a nation of laws then something needs to be done about this illegal activities very soon!
No matter if you are wealthy and powerful… the same rules must apply to everybody who breaks the law!
