Rep. King (R-NY) 'Critical' of Obama for 'Silence' on NSA

On Sunday, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) told CBS’ Face the Nation that while he “applauds” President Obama “for continuing the NSA program,” he is “very critical of him for…basically he’s been silent for the last two months. He’s allowed the Edward Snowdens and the others of the world to dominate the media and now we have so many people who actually think the NSA is spying on people, is listening to our phone calls, is reading our emails.”

King said, “The president of the United States, as commander in chief, has the obligation to be aggressively and effectively defending this program and he really didn’t do it.”

On Friday, President Obama mirrored King’s analysis, stating that the media had overblown concerns about the NSA program.
