about

This track is a critique of the backpedaling and sidestepping maneuvers executed by various authority figures in the wake of Edward Snowden's revelations regarding the unlawful electronic surveillance of US citizens.

Shortly after the leaks hit the mainstream press, the White House and the US Senate Intelligence Committee both held press conferences in which they desperately tried to deflect and trivialize the truth. The spoken samples in this track were taken from those press conferences.

Note: President Obama didn't actually say "Yes, We Scan!" The sample you hear in this track was taken from his acceptance speech on election night in 2008, in which he repeated the phrase, "Yes, We Can!" However, given his outright endorsement of the unconstitutional acts of the NSA under the PRISM program, it seemed appropriate to help my listeners hear what he really meant to exclaim with such fervor.
