Shear propaganda as written by the White House in an attempt to create some news:
President Barack Obama has signed into law a five-year extension of the U.S. government’s authority to monitor the overseas activity of suspected foreign spies and terrorists. ….
The law does not apply to Americans. When Americans are targeted for surveillance, the government must get a warrant from a special 11-judge court of U.S. district judges appointed by the Supreme Court.

This is of course the White House trying to move the news off of Hillary not testifying on Benghazi, Eric Holder selling guns to Mexico yet Obama now saying those guns should be illegal anyway (I guess to prevent Holder from selling any more to Mexican drug cartels,) and the ever present fiscal cliff.
Lest we forget, Holder is the guy who said that the U.S. government can kill you without so much as a hearing or trial. So forgive me but it’s more than just a little out of place for the same people to now try to make a big deal over taping some phone calls.
“Don’t worry. We won’t read your emails and tap your phone without a court order. … But, we can drone bomb your ass to kill you and your entire family based on the opinion of some nameless person in the administration who thinks you’re a threat. Ya, we don’t need a court order for that.”
