The Hammer: Obama’s NSA Reform ’90 Percent Smoke and Mirrors’

Charles Krauthammer praised the president’s NSA speech as the “best use of Obama’s rhetorical powers of dazzling with very little content since the ‘08 campaign.”

On Friday night’s Special Report, Krauthammer characterized President Obama’s reforms to the United States’ surveillance as

“90 percent smoke and mirrors, and very little substantive change, which is what we need.”

Due to the programs’ importance, the president recognized that any major changes would have risked American security, despite a big push from Democrats to do so.

“Overall, I give him an A-minus, and if I were a leftie, I’d be upset.”
