Obammy picks Clapper to investigate...Clapper

So...reckon how this will turn out?

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/...-review-panel/

On Friday, President Barack Obama promised to appoint an “independent group” of “outside experts” to review the government’s surveillance programs.

Today, the president formally ordered the formation of this group, giving us a sense forjust how independent the group would be. The announcement doesn’t inspire confidence that the president is interested in truly independent scrutiny of the nation’s surveillance programs.

The panel will be chosen by, and report to, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. Clapper famously answered “no sir” when Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) asked whether the NSA collects information about millions of Americans. Clapper has since conceded that this answer was “clearly erroneous.”

And there are other signs that the group won’t turn out quite the way the president described it on Friday. Friday’s speech talked about the need for input from outside experts with independent points of view. The president made no mention of the need for outsiders or independent viewpoints in his memo to Clapper.

Our justice system would work better if we could all investigate ourselves. You are accused of such and such crime..how do you plea? I'll start investigating myself right away and get to the bottom of this.

That's so hilarious. He picks the guy who lied to congress to investigate this. Just when I think Obama couldn't possibly be a bigger joke...

Yeah, that's the real issue, IMO. Having the Director of National Intelligence investigate a subordinate organization might make some sense if the DNI was a respected professional, but Clapper's credibility is irredeemably damaged and in any event you can't claim it's independent in a meaningful way.

The better approach would be to fully cooperate with a bipartisan Congressional investigation run by the intelligence committees.

Well, that just seems counter-productive if Clapper is like most human beings and interested in self-preservation.
