      behavior - actually that can be said of all of these people who thought that this kind of huge and sweeping spying program which employs thousands of people could be kept secret.

      But the reality is that your point is moot - Clapper lied to Congress which was stupid on his part - it is a prosecutable offense.  He broke the law.  He doesn't have to seek asylum in Iceland, though.  He was lying to Congress on behalf of the state so that makes his law breaking okay?  Really this is going down the rabbit hole - and it is highly problematic.  

      Definitely not looking like much of  a Democracy when Congressional hearings become deceitful theater - okay - well that's not new - lol - but maybe this is really different from the political theatrics and potentially much more dangerous to the democracy they claim they are protecting.
