(Reuters) - President Barack Obama has ordered the National Security Agency to stop eavesdropping on the headquarters of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank as part of a review of intelligence gathering activities, according to a U.S. official familiar with the matter.
The order is the latest move by the White House to demonstrate that it is willing to curb at least some surveillance in the wake of leaks by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden of programs that collect huge quantities of data on U.S. allies and adversaries, and American citizens.
Wow this is LOL to the extreme, and by that I mean a sad LOL. Talk about sneaky. Obama tries to save face and curb NSA's spying and publicly announces halt on spying on BANKS of all institutions, institutions that pretty much run the major world governments. Then he gets to spin this to the public like he is actually doing something about the NSA's spying program... Sigh...
You people crack me up. If he spies you complain, if he stops the spying you complain. I think you just want to complain about Obama. And for the record along with not spying on the banks, he ordered them to quit spying on you too. The spying that Bush a republican started with the patriot act.
