Obama defends NSA surveillance program, Urges people to draw balance between privacy and security


President Barack Obama has called out to Americans urging them to “make some choices” in drawing balance between privacy and security. Obama was on the defensive for the NSA secret surveillance programs which is known to sweep up an estimated 3 billion phone calls every day and collect Internet data from U.S. providers with an aim to prevent terror attacks.

Obama says that identifying threats against the U.S. isn’t easy anymore as the two top-secret tools devised to target terrorists are thoroughly publicized.

As Obama justified the spy programs revealed this week, he was defensive and defiant at times while talking to reporters on Friday.
