Our agency suddenly needed to do far more than the traditional mission of monitoring possible power isn't gathering information for policy makers. Instead they were now asked to identify and target plotters and some of the most remote parts of the world. And two anticipated reactions. A network that by the very nature cannot be easily penetrated with spies or performance. And it is great testimony of hard work and dedication. The men and women of our intelligence community that over the past decade. We've made enormous strides in fulfilling this mission. In an extraordinarily difficult job. One in which actions are second guessed. Success is on the order and failure can be catastrophic. The men and women of intelligence community. Including the an aspect.

The bottom line is that people around the world regardless of their nationality. Should know that the United States is not spying on ordinary people who don't threaten our national security. We take their privacy concerns into account. In our policies and procedures. Is applied to. Form leaders as well. Given the understandable tension of efficiency not made clear to the intelligence community that. Unless there is a compelling national security purpose. We want not monitor the communications head of state and government are close friends and allies. Bellamy declare our intelligence ban d.s will continue to gather information about the intentions of governments. The most ordinary citizens around the world. In the same way that the intelligence services of every other nation does. We want not apologize simply because our services may be more active. But heads of state government with whom we work closely and on whose cooperation we depend. Should feel confident that we are treating them as real partners. Imaging as the order do just that.
