So much for the idea of the federal government reforming itself.
During the so-called government shutdown, Politico reported that the NSA’s surveillance panel, supposedly established to remedy the agency’s illegal behavior, went on hiatus.
Director of National Intelligence James Clapper was slated to head up the panel. You might remember he infamously lied under oath about spying allegations. Now that the government is back open for business, it still remains uncertain when, or if, the panel will resume operations.
And even if it does convene, does anybody actually think Clapper and company will do anything to protect the people?Details
