President Obama announced on Friday that he will place new limits on intelligence agencies' bulk collection of phone call records. But he rejected some other recommendations to rein in surveillance made by a panel of outside advisers.

The NYT lists the changes. It's insubstantial.

Poe's law applies there, because what it was said was probably a sarcasm, but it's impossible to know it just by reading it.

Well, I thought so too but then the title kinda contradicts the post being sarcastic.

The title says "More racist attacks on Obama?" like the people who think that "Obama and the NSA are protecting us all, it's racists who are attacking Obama", hence the probable sarcasm.
