Nothing To See Here...Move Along American Sheep As Obama Henchman James Clapper Apologizes For Lying To Congress On NSA Spying

I guess that's all you have to do in the new Obama're a government official and when you are sworn in to testify in front of a Congressional committee you lie...and then awhile later, you simply just apologize for lying.

And everything is aokay.  The Communist machine just keeps chugging along.  The transformation continues on its path.  And the sheep of America just grin.  And bear it.

The story comes from Times of India.

US intelligence chief James Clapper apologizes for 'erroneous' answer

WASHINGTON: National Intelligence director James Clapper is apologizing for telling Congress earlier this year that the National Security Agency does not collect data on millions of Americans.

In a letter to Senate Intelligence Committee chairwoman Dianne Feinstein, Clapper says his answer was "clearly erroneous."

Leaks by NSA systems analyst Edward Snowden have revealed the NSA's sweeping data collection of US phone records and some Internet traffic every day, though US intelligence officials have said the programmes are aimed at targeting foreigners and terrorist suspects overseas.

Clapper was asked in March if the NSA gathered "any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans." He answered that it did not happen wittingly.
