Clapper's Third Excuse for Misleading Congress About the NSA Is His Best

"Respectfully, Jim." So ends a June 21 letter from James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence, to Senator Dianne Feinstein of California, explaining why on March 12 he told a Congressional committee that the NSA doesn't "collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of million of Americans." In his letter, Clapper offers his third version of an excuse: he misunderstood the question. Whichever five-year-old taught our government agencies how to be accountable for their behavior did a hell of a job.
