  •   Mr. Obama, for his part, called the U.S. Internet surveillance program "circumscribed" and "narrow," insisting that U.S. intelligence agencies are not "rifling through ordinary emails" of "German citizens or American citizens or anyone else" and that the Internet and telephone surveillance programs are under federal court supervision.
  • 歐巴馬則說,美國的網際網路監視項目是 “有限度的” 和“狹窄的”;他堅持說,美國情報機構不會查看德國、美國或任何國家普通公民的電郵,網路與電話監控項目是在聯邦法庭監督之下進行的。

  •   He said his administration has struck "the appropriate balance" between protecting the American people and preserving "civil liberty and privacy."
  • 他說,他的政府在保護美國人民與維持 “民權自由和隱私” 之間找到了 “適度的平衡”。

  •   He also reiterated that the surveillance programs have "saved lives."
