Save the NSA: Most Twisted Headline in Memory

N.S.A. Disclosures Put Awkward Light on Previous Denials

Not funny, NYTimes.

I'd been thinking about that James Clapper denial to Congress for a few days now, but NYTimes chimes in this morning. But, hey, citizens, we gotta be real soft on those NSA fee-fees, don't we? Don't want to go all Issa on them.

I'll get video when I can.

Update. Meanwhile, Greg Sargent at Plum Line acts like an adult whose knees don't go weak thinking about the surveillance issue, and makes complete sense.

Update 2.  Okay, got the video (can't embed, though) at the Huffington Post. Headline:

James Clapper: I Gave 'Least Untruthful' Answer Possible On NSA Surveillance

Yeah, we're in twisted territory, all right.

Update 3. Found the smoking gun clip at New York Magazine.  Again, can't copy embed code but found the original, longer video at YouTube.

By the way, New York Magazine has a more straightforward headline:

Is This a Video of the Director of National Intelligence Lying to Congress?

See, that wasn't so hard, was it, media?

Update 4. Took awhile, but the trip was fun, wasn't it? Here's the vid:


Yeah, lying. Big time.
