“NSA is a professional foreign-intelligence organization with a highly trained workforce, including brave and dedicated men and women from our armed forces… As we have said before, the agency has zero tolerance for willful violations of the agency’s authorities or professional standards.” ~ Spokeswoman for the NSA, speaking to Forbes magazine
I guess that’s why highly trained Director of National Intelligence James Clapper sets such a good example of professional behavior by lying to Congress, the body that oversees and sets professional standards for the NSA. I guess we should be grateful the intelligence community has such outstanding leadership, because that means we can trust it to do everything it is supposed to do, and not do anything it is not supposed to do. Thank you, NSA spokeswoman, for reassuring us your organization is super trustworthy, and that we never have to worry about your leadership lying to us. You guys are great. Keep up the good work.
