WASHINGTON- Today, U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., vice chairman of the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, issued the following statement in response to President Obama’s remarks regarding changes to intelligence collection activities:

“The purpose of our intelligence programs is to protect Americans in an increasingly dangerous world. The men and women of the Intelligence Community have a difficult job, and I am pleased the president recognized their professionalism and dedication. However, I am disappointed many of the changes he advocated today will make their jobs much harder, with little privacy benefit to the American people. It seems odd the president seems to be elevating the privacy interests of foreigners over the national security interests of the American people.”
