Obama’s NSA Reforms Are “A Bouquet of Roses” to the Intelligence Agencies; Julian Assange Responds To NSA Reforms Speech

Earlier today, President Obama outlined reforms of America’s controversial surveillance tactics – which had ensnared millions of people’s phone calls, texts and emails around the globe. After praising the NSA and its importance to security, he admitted it made mistakes in its collection of private data.

Julian Assange: This president has been dragged kicking and screaming to today’s address. He’s been very reluctant to make any concrete reforms. Unfortunately today, we also see very few concrete reforms…

The National Institute of Standards and Technology issued its final report on Building 7 in November 2008, more than six years after starting its investigation. Because almost all of the physical evidence had been destroyed, NIST’s theory depended largely on its ability to reproduce the collapse through modeling. Despite being able to adjust inputs in order to achieve the desired result, NIST’s model does not come close to reproducing the observed collapse.
