He Didn’t Make a Mistake. He Lied. And the Senate He Lied to Was In On It.

Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, says he “made a mistake” when he said “No sir. Not wittingly.”

He’s sent a letter to Senator Dianne Feinstein apologizing for his “mistake.”

The question that prompted this “mistake” was one in which Mr Clapper was asked if his agency collects “any type of data on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans.”

His answer, which he gave under oath, was “No sir. Not wittingly.”

Enter Edward Snowden, the man who the press and Congress have labeled public enemy number one, and who our government is using every bit of its international muscle to chase down and put on trial. No country will give Mr Snowden asylum. After all, who wants to mess with America?

What was Edward Snowden’s crime? He proved, rather convincingly, that the Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, dead, flat lied to Congress when he said that his agency did not have “millions or hundreds of millions of Americans” under surveillance.

In truth, the lying Mr Clapper had just about the entire nation under the “information gathering” gun.

I don’t believe that Mr Clapper “made a mistake” when he said this. I don’t believe that he forgot that he was engaging in the most massive violation of the civil rights of the America people in the history of this nation. It is already a matter of fact that the President of the United States had informed our “duly elected officials” about what was going on. That means that Senator Feinstein knew Mr Clapper was lying. The President knew he was lying. The Speaker of the House knew he was lying.

When their silence let his lie stand, they were lying, too.

Here’s the Fourth Amendment. Read it and weep:

AMENDMENT IV

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Under fire for telling Congress his agency did not gather intelligence on millions of Americans, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper apologized for what he called a “clearly erroneous” statement.Clapper apologized in a letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein, chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee. The letter was dated June 21, but was released to the public on Tuesday.

In it, Clapper says he has “thought long and hard” to recreate what was going on in his mind when he responded to a question from Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., asking whether Clapper’s agency collects “any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans.”

“No sir,” Clapper answered at the March 12 hearing. “Not wittingly.”

That was proved to be false when former NSA contract employee Edward Snowden leaked classified information on the PRISM program, which collects electronic communications, including email. Another leak showed that the NSA collects metadata from phone calls showing times and duration of calls as well as the other number involved in the call.

    Perhaps my advantage in this is that I grew up in Italy in the seventies, a time when all kinds of odious and contemptible things were hidden under the veil of state secrecy, and we learned the hard way that our politicians were not to be trusted. But Italy is a middle-sized power whose political crimes mainly amounted to corruption, influence selling, and – the worst – collusion with the mafia. When the world’s one superpower sets out coherently and consistently, with hidden bipartisan agreement, to violate its own laws in the pursuit of control over the whole citizenship and over as much of the rest of the world as it can reach, then people who love freedom must realize they have their backs to the wall.

    Tomorrow is July 4. Just saying.

    Working in criminal justice, I hear this all the time: “I made some mistakes” or, “I made some bad choices”. No. Raping a child is a BAD THING. You DID a bad thing.

      It is not a bad thing to spy on potential terrorists and it is not a bad thing to lie about spying when the purpose is to protect us. Snowden will eventually face justice.

    “he was engaging in the most massive violation of the civil rights of the America people in the history of this nation.”

    I don’t feel that my civil rights have been violated. I appreciate what the government is doing to protect me from terrorists.
