Obama says U.S. must be more transparent on surveillance

by Wochit 1:13 mins

President Barack Obama said the United States "can and must be more transparent" about surveillance programs and promised to work with Congress to put constraints on government spying. President Barack Obama is still considering several candidates for the chairmanship of the Federal Reserve and will announce his decision in the coming months. President Obama announced a series of new reforms to increase public confidence in the National Security Agency's controversial Internet and telephone surveillance program. The 4 reforms he's proposed are all quite vague: 1). "Pursue appropriate reforms" around section 215 of the Patriot Act, which authorizes the NSA to conduct surveillance. 2). Create a public advocate to argue in front of the secret court that grants the NSA authority to target suspects (both foreign and domestic). This advocate would argue for more privacy. 3). Create a website detailing what the NSA does?and does not?collect on Americans and foreigners. 4). Create an independent agency that reviews cybersecurity processes and produces timely reports.
