The Insider’s View

Jennifer Hoelzer is the former deputy chief of staff for Senator Ron Wyden (D OR), long term NSA critic. Today she wrote a “Favorite Posts of the Week” column for TechDirt, talking about the NSA surveillance programs. I don’t normally post links to things I don’t comment on, but I think this one stands on its own.

The TL;DR version: the President, the Intelligence Community, and the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence have been guilty of lies and coverups about the legality of the NSA collections programs, and the recent public statements by the President are simply more lies and obfuscations. Go read it, and read the stories it links to, and keep in mind that this is just one week’s worth of news and commentary on the topic.
