Clapper...more fun with Jim

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/i...164742798.html


Always shades of some truth but never really the truth. "Its an unfair question"? WTF?????


Director of National Intelligence James Clapper is really struggling to explain why he told Congress in March (see video above) that the National Security Agency does not intentionally collect any kind of data on millions of Americans. His latest take: It’s an unfair question, he said, like “When are you going to stop beating your wife?” And it seems to depend on the meaning of “collect.”

“I responded in what I thought was the most truthful, or least untruthful, manner by saying ‘no,’” Clapper told NBC News on Sunday.

A newly revealed NSA program, however, in which the agency secretly vacuumed up the telephone records of millions of Verizon customers seems to fit the definition of both “data” and “millions of Americans.”

Last week, Clapper said his “no” meant that NSA analysts don’t read Americans’ emails. Some have noted that could explain his earlier answer because “collect” has a precise meaning in intelligence-gathering circles, and it’s along those lines.

I'm sure this guy won't end up in jail. They'll find some technicality to forgive his lying under oath.

Dirk has assured me this was no big deal so it shouldn't matter anyway.

Hell, I'm not worried about any of those guys going to prison...I just hope I end up in one of the "nicer" gulags (hopefully not one run by cosmo20002 or Erecksun)...

Hell the President lies directly to the people of the United States with impunity. Why would it bother anyone that one of his minions follows his lead?

Or he'll get a pardon if anything does happen.

I don't think he'll go to jail, but I think Congress had better get on the ball holding these people accountable in some way or they'll continue to lie whenever it's convenient.

The biggest problem this whole PRISM revelation has illuminated is the failure of Congress to (a) draft acceptable laws with enough detail that the executive branch can't just use it however they want to, (b) maintain adequate oversight so that there is really a check on executive power, and (c) hold members of the executive branch accountable for the representations they make as a part of that oversight function.
