Sen. Pauls Statement on President Obamas NSA Reform
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Sen. Rand Paul today issued the following statement regarding President Obama's plan to reform the National Security Agency (NSA) surveillance program:
"While I am encouraged the President is addressing the NSA spying program because of pressure from Congress and the American people, I am disappointed in the details. The Fourth Amendment requires an individualized warrant based on probable cause before the government can search phone records and e-mails. President Obama's announced solution to the NSA spying controversy is the same unconstitutional program with a new configuration," Sen. Paul said. "I intend to continue the fight to restore Americans rights through my Fourth Amendment Restoration Act and my legal challenge against the NSA. The American people should not expect the fox to guard the hen house."
