New FBI Director Thinks President Obama's Surveillance Program Is Great
from the well,-duh dept
In an interview, Comey claimed that he's "comfortable" with the surveillance program and that the program is "lawful and appropriate." Furthermore, it appears he repeatedly talked about the supposed "checks and balances" of the program -- the same checks and balances that don't appear to exist in reality. It's no surprise that an FBI boss is going to obviously talk up his own power to spy on everyone, but it's rather shameful he tried to avoid those questions prior to getting the job.
