-----Surveillance critics face Obama in Oval Office
Full story: Yahoo!
Struggling to salvage a massive surveillance program, President Barack Obama faced congressional critics of the National Security Agency's collection of Americans' telephone records Thursday as snowballing concerns made new limitations on the intelligence effort appear increasingly likely.----

When in old times, Kings and Hitler gave no civil rights to people, people should have more civil liberty in modern times in comparison to the old past.

Yet, Obama is the worst of all time, by acting as the tyrant as neo-Hitler of using repressive, massive surveillance of masses by massively destruction of civil liberty of masses at all time high, by committing genocide of basic human rights needs of US public, as not going forward but backward.

Obama acts another neo-Hitler nowadays by engaging hacking the world.

NO Germany people want to use US model of snooping on German public to further decay their people's basic and fundamental rights any more by being a follower of the Neo-Hitler villain Obama policy in other matters as well.

This is the new world that no nation can commit so much wrongdoings.

US has been acting as a neo-Hitler these day with the awful Obama by oppressing general human rights freedom of many people around the world, by spying on them in addition to hacking and by committing massive rules breaking as a big thug tyrant around the world.

US is not a free country any more nor a nation for freedom people.

There must be no more breaking world rules from US again in these new times of the new world.

The world cannot move on, until US must be learning the lesson, that global people are required to manage the essential direction by conducting the responsibilities required to engage in the utmost needed worldwide policies to oversee US wrongs.

You left out this part, monkey:

"A government official says the move is largely symbolic and has no practical consequences for intelligence cooperation."

"The late 1960s agreement allowed the U.S. and Britain to ask the Germans to conduct surveillance operations within Germany to protect foreign troops stationed here."
