Spying by the NSA is shameful action

The idea of a U.S. administration spying on its own citizens, foreign leaders and foreigners is shameful. How can two people be friends if one behaves in this rotten manner?

When Barack Obama was running for the White House the first time, he had promised a very clean and transparent administration. We have yet to see a trace of what he promised. As a candidate he was totally against spying -- but he changed.

The NSA spying is not being done by some low-level employee; the orders are coming from the top. Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff canceled her visit to the United States because her emails, phone calls and text messages were hacked.

When German Chancellor Angela Merkel spoke with President Obama, she made it clear she had no faith in what Obama was saying.

Spying on people, posting U.S. troops around the world, doling out U.S. dollars (our taxes) and treating other countries like banana republics does not make the United States great. No one can buy greatness.

Worth it to prevent more terror attacks

Am I concerned about NSA spying? No. Is my privacy worth another 9/11 attack? Or a Boston Marathon? Or any of the many attacks that have been prevented by NSA spying?

Your privacy is worth more than your life, than the lives of others? Get real.

Track record causes substantial concern

Everyone should be concerned regarding revelations about NSA spying. This administration has a very bad habit of overreaching on various issues.

To name a few: Fast and Furious, Benghazi-gate, IRS, drones, and now the chaotic mess put together with lies, deceit and broken promises, Obamacare.

My concern is the president telling the people he knew nothing of all issues until he read it in the newspaper or watched it on TV news.

If that is also true, he must have some incompetent advisers who jeopardize our national security and freedom.

the Washington Post has awarded the White House four Pinochios for its constant falsehood statements on all pending issues. Thus, my great concern on NSA spying.
