US film director Oliver Stone on Thursday accused President Barack Obama’s administration of implementing a surveillance system worse than that of the feared Stasi secret police in East Germany.

Speaking at the San Sebastian film festival in northern Spain, where he presented his film “Snowden,” Stone said many in the US had grown disillusioned with a president they once saw as “a man of great integrity.”

“On the contrary, Obama has doubled down on the (George W.) Bush administration policies,” said Stone, whose latest movie is a biographical political thriller about Edward Snowden, the former intelligence contractor who revealed a vast US surveillance programme in 2013.

Obama “has created… the most massive global security surveillance state that’s ever been seen, way beyond East Germany’s Stasi, way beyond that.”

“In the name of one thing — terrorism — to change all the rules is not a marginal response, it’s an extreme response,” he told reporters.

“Let’s beware of fascists and tyrants who tell us ‘we are going to protect you’. I don’t want that.”

This is far from the first time that Stone has dabbled in politics, having directed “Platoon” about the Vietnam War, “JFK” and “Nixon” among a host of other films.

He insisted “there was no agenda” behind the release of his latest movie just weeks ahead of US elections, but said he hoped Obama would pardon Snowden, who currently lives in Russia after escaping his homeland.

  1. Reblogged this on World Peace Forum.

  2. Our loss of freedom is the obama legacy. I to agree with Oliver Stones view of his behaviour. What really amounts to that of a pompous two headed narcissist furthering the agenda of a global shadow government. Stone probably has written the script for the future blockbuster puppet show, “OBAMA, the Last United States President”.

    First scene, Hilary is smoking a cigar with Trump in a bomb shelter under Drumpf Tower in Tel Aviv. They are laughing there asses off at Bill who is still seething mad at Hilary who put Trump up to roasting Bill alive and in front of the whole wide world, when the ruby red phone lights up, its Mr. President calling about a golf tournament he realized he scheduled during “Yum Kipper” .

    All kidding aside…Obama “is” the last US president… not will be, he “is”. In fact, its past tense, Barackos actually “was” the last US president since July 11th 2013.

    TO BE CONTINUED

    Action ctthea few times. This is how I see
