President Obama recently gave a speech about possible reforms at the NSA. Obama began his speech by invoking the name Paul Revere. He stated that Revere and the Sons of Liberty “would patrol the streets, reporting back any signs that the British were preparing raids against America’s early Patriots.” While, this did happen, there is one major difference between the Sons of Liberty and the NSA.
