Pres. Obama: Tap Sen. Ron Wyden to Head NSA

To be delivered to The United States Senate and President Barack Obama

Petition Statement

We urge President Obama to name Oregon Senator Ron Wyden as his choice to head the National Security Agency.
There are currently 13,156 signatures. NEW goal - We need 15,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Gen. Keith Alexander is stepping down as head of the National Security Agency. Fresh, civilian leadership is needed at the NSA to ensure that the NSA's surveillance activities fully comply with the letter and spirit of the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and all U.S. laws. Oregon Senator Ron Wyden, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, has been a consistent and vocal critic of blanket NSA surveillance of Americans that violates the basic civil liberties guarantees of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Senator Wyden is an ideal candidate to restore public confidence in NSA compliance with the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and all U.S. laws.
