The Most Transparent President Evah Signs Onto 5 More Years Of Warrentless Wiretaps

On the evening of Sunday, December 30th, 2012

President Barack Obama has signed into law a five-year extension of the U.S. government’s authority to monitor the overseas activity of suspected foreign spies and terrorists.

The warrantless intercept program would have expired at the end of 2012 without the president’s approval. The renewal bill won final passage in the Senate on Friday.

Known as the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, the law allows the government to monitor overseas phone calls and emails without obtaining a court order for each intercept.

If you think that George W. Bush was out to get your constitutional rights, you ought to be horrified. But you aren’t. You trust Obama, because he’s a Democrat.
