Rogers: Obama NSA Speech Left Us With More Uncertainty

Congress-bin-ladenTalking Points Memo – by CAITLIN MACNEAL

Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, on Sunday said thatPresident Obama’s Friday speech on National Security Agency reforms left Congress with some uncertainty about U.S. surveillance programs.

Rogers said on CNN’s “State of the Union” that the U.S. needed Obama to make a decision about the NSA’s data collection programs, but instead “what we got was lots of uncertainty.”  

Rogers was frustrated that Obama has not yet decided how to move data on Americans’ phone records from the government to a third party, and instead asked with Attorney General Eric Holder and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper to develop a plan.

The Intelligence Chairman, while disappointed with that aspect of the speech, said he was glad that Obama stressed that reviews of the NSA found no abuses within its surveillance programs.

“I thought it was important that the President laid that case out,” Rogers said.

    I’m more certain than ever than he’s a traitor (or would be, if he was actually an American), and needs to be hung ASAP.
