Rand Paul on Obama on NSA: "The Same Unconstitutional Program with a New Configuration"

|


Look for much more coverage of Obama's NSA speech this morning as the day rolls on here at Hit and Run, but Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul's reaction is worth a quick note, via a press release:

"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."
