Twice, Not Three Times

Obama’s NSA reforms won’t protect Americans’ privacy « Hot Air Headlines: "Even though President Obama assures us “the United States is not spying on ordinary people,” this statement does not jibe with any of his suggested reforms. Plus, we’ve heard these types of assurances before.

Obama saying that his new policy will only examine private information “two steps” removed from the target, as opposed to the current policy of three steps, is no comfort at all. The president might as well be saying we’re only going to abuse the Fourth Amendment twice, not three times."
Thank you Rand.  Yeah, Obama has the solution here all right. As long as the problem is to maintain his power to suppress political opponents.
