Piers Decries NSA Snooping: ‘Single Greatest Attack On Civil Liberties & Privacy Of Americans I’ve Ever Seen!’

During his CNN show last night, Piers Morgan repeatedly criticized the Obama administration’s National Security Agency having secretly obtained the phone records of millions of Americans. At one point he said this latest scandal represents the “single greatest attack” on American privacy and civil liberties he has ever seen; at another, he argued that Obama is “worse” than his predecessor on civil liberties issues.

“To me, this looks like the single greatest attack on civil liberties and privacy of Americans I’ve ever seen,’ he told New York City mayoral candidate Christine Quinn, who was less alarmed by the developments.

Earlier in the show, while speaking with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Morgan argued that one could make the case that President Obama‘s campaign promise to be “different” from George W. Bush was correct… in that he’s actually “worse” than Bush on civil liberties.
