NSA, Sochi among Obama's political headaches

A brand new report recommends that the National Security Agency's spying program stay in place, but urges the President to rein-in the NSA's massive collection of cell phone and internet data.

The controversial program has sparked concern fury from foreign leaders, concerned about reports that the United States has been spying on them. 

Unfortunately for President Obama, that's just one item on his list of political headaches.

The United States' delegation to the upcoming Winter Olympics in Russia won't include a member of President Barack Obama's family or an active cabinet secretary, but it will include openly gay athletes – a clear jab at Russia's recent anti-gay laws. FULL STORY.

Washington Post op-ed columnist Ruth Marcus and The Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol are in the #Crossfire, joining host S.E. Cupp and Van Jones to debate these topics and other issues facing President Obama.

We want you to weigh in: Do you think the U.S. should boycott the Olympics in Russia?

Former Obama aide slams president’s comments on NSA

(CNN) - A former special advisor to President Barack Obama and co-host of CNN's "Crossfire" Van Jones criticized the president's recent statements about the National Security Agency's domestic surveillance programs.

"We don't have a domestic spying program," Obama said on "The Tonight Show" Tuesday. "What we do have are some mechanisms where we can track a phone number or an email address that we know is connected to some sort of terrorist threat."
