    the NSA is quite fine with people on the Senate Intelligence Cmte., for example, being in that situation because it makes life much easier for them (NSA).  It also helps the NSA that those they brief may never speak outside of the briefing room on what they're told so they have no way of testing whether or not what they've been told is true or accurate.  Effectively, it's being able to tell their (NSA) audience just about anything and knowing that unless somebody in that audience is pretty savvy, that they can say whatever they want to.

      being sworn to secrecy, you can never prove that you were lied to.

      What are you doing to fight the dangerous and counterproductive error of treating dirtbag terrorist criminals as though they were comic book supervillains? I can't believe we still have to argue this shit, let alone on Daily Kos.
