Almost Nothing

I think it's embarrassing for a head of state like that to go on for almost 45 minutes and say almost nothing. ...  It's clear that the President would not be speaking today without the actions of Edward Snowden and whistle-blowers before him. ...  Security whistle-blowers have forced this debate.  This president has been dragged, kicking and screaming, to today's address.  He's been very reluctant to make any concrete reforms, and unfortunately, today we also see very few concrete reforms.

-- WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on CNN's live coverage of President Obama's NSA speech, 17 January 2014
