Human Rights Watch says Obama not gone far enough on NSA reforms

Obama speaks about the National Security Agency in WashingtonBy Michelle Martin BERLIN (Reuters) – U.S. President Barack Obama has not gone far enough in reforming the monitoring activities of the National Security Agency (NSA) and is continuing to violate the privacy rights of individuals, the head of Human Rights Watch told Reuters. On Friday, Obama banned eavesdropping on the leaders of allies and began reining in the vast collection of U.S. citizens’ phone data, seeking to reassure Americans and foreigners that the United States would take into account privacy concerns highlighted by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden’s revelations. But Kenneth Roth, executive director of the New York-based group, told Reuters in Berlin that Obama had provided little more than “vague assurance” on the monitoring of communications.
