NSA PRISM program: Obama isnt being hypocritical.

. . . Yes, Obama vaguely promised to ensure civil liberties and prevent executive overreach, but he also openly praised the FISA court system—the secret court system that gives the government the power to collect data on millions of people without them knowing—as an exemplar of oversight. He voted for the Patriot Act reauthorization in 2005 and the FISA Amendments Act in 2008, which he originally opposed. So his stance on surveillance may have made him a hypocrite back in 2008, but that statute of limitations expired long ago. Calling Obama a hypocrite doesnt give him the dubious distinction hes earned: as one of the more unapologetically hawkish presidents in recent history.
