MEETING THE PRESS: President Obama today.
  • MEETING THE PRESS: President Obama today.
President Obama held a news conference this afternoon to discuss spying and citizens' privacy. Naturally, a task force will result.

He does favor a change in procedure for the secret court that reviews wiretap applications but has broadened its role into privacy concerns without arguments from legal adversaries.

No, he doesn't think Edward Snowden is a "patriot."

Speaker Boehner responds. "Our priority should continue to be saving American lives, not saving face."

On another subject: The president said he opposed an Olympic boycott and said he hoped lesbian and gay athletes would bring home medals.
