    I realize that Wyden and Udall are politically astute enough to play this in a manner that will "allow" the NSA to revise and extend its remarks for the record.

    But assuming that doesn't happen, the Senators are protected by the Speech or Debate Clause of the Constitution, and can say essentially whatever they choose on the Senate floor, including revealing what they think the NSA is lying about now.

    NSA is not unaware of this...

    Consequently, it is in the overall interests of the National Security/Surveillance State to modify inaccurate statements and rescind outright lies before the matter is settled through revelation of more documents and/or the truthful statements from the Senate floor.
