Obama: Hey, My Emails Could Be Targeted Too (Video)

Barack Obama told reporters today not to worry about reports on NSA data mining. The program involves the National Security Agency and FBI tapping into the servers of nine leading Internet companies to extract information.
Obama also said he could be targeted, too.

“I will leave the office at some point. Sometime in the next three and a half years and after that I will be a private citizen. And I suspect that on a list of people who might be targeted so that somebody can read their emails or listen to their phone calls, I might be high on that list. So it’s not that I personally don’t have an interest in insuring that my privacy is protected.”
