Watch director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, seemingly lie this past March to Sen. Ron Wyden (one of few critics of the administration after this week's bombshells on NSA "spying"). Then see this from The Guardian's blog on what happened this morning:
Stephanopoulos plays a clip of DNI James Clapper testifying before a hearing of the Senate intelligence committee in March this year, in which he was asked by Democratic senator Ron Wyden: "Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?"
"No sir," replied Clapper. "Not intentionally."
Stephanopoulos tells Feinstein, I have to admit it's hard for me to square what Clapper said there with what we've found out in recent days.
Feinstein responds that James Clapper is a model of honesty and says perhaps the question –or the answer– has been misunderstood.
