  •  yet to face perjury charges, Clapper..... (7+ / 0-)

    but of course perjury charges to come shortly, because we are after all a nation of laws, equal justice, etc etc. etc. and THIS. IS. A. CRIME, which cannot go unpunished, because he "broke the law" .......

    In a letter this week to senator Ron Wyden, director of national intelligence James Clapper acknowledged that NSA analysts have exceeded even legal limits as interpreted by the NSA in domestic surveillance.

    Acknowledging what he called "a number of compliance problems", Clapper attributed them to "human error" or "highly sophisticated technology issues" rather than "bad faith".

    However, Wyden said on the Senate floor on Tuesday: "These violations are more serious than those stated by the intelligence community, and are troubling."
