can you say 'extortion'?

Maybe 'blackmail'?
I knew you could.

General Sisi, I should add, is Egypt’s new strongman, not Putin’s characterization of Obama.  But if you pronounce it correctly, it's that too.
And the “prospect” is now a reality: “actual abuse” — including “listening in on people’s phone calls” and “inappropriately reading people’s e-mails” — occurs daily. In early 2012, “actual abuse” was occurring at the rate of ten “incidents” a day — and “incident” is a term of art that can cover hundreds of violations of thousands or even millions of citizens.
But Obama's too busy on the golf course to be bothered with such things.  Assuming he actually gave a damn anyway.

"How dare you laugh at your superiors!  And PowerPoint!"
