Boehner’s Office Reacts To Obama’s Spying Oversight Plan

House Speaker John Boehner’s (R-OH) spokesman said Friday that President Obama’s plan to enhance oversight of the National Security Agency must not “compromise the operational integrity” of its spying program.

“Much of any public concern about this critical program can be attributed to the president’s reluctance to sufficiently explain and defend it,” said Brendan Buck. “Transparency is important, but we expect the White House to insist that no reform will compromise the operational integrity of the program. That must be the president’s red line, and he must enforce it. Our priority should continue to be saving American lives, not saving face.”
