Susan Rice: NSA officials didn’t lie, they ‘inadvertantly made false representations’

National Security Advisor Susan Rice appeared on Sunday night’s 60 Minutes with Lesley Stahl and discussed the fallout from the Edward Snowden leaked documents.

“Officials in the intelligence community have actually been untruthful both to the American public in hearings, in Congress, and to the FISA court,” Stahl asked Rice.

Her response has sparked attacks by critics: “There have been cases where they have inadvertently made false representations, and they themselves have discovered it and corrected it.” (Emphasis added, BBJ The Dispatch)

Former Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald, who assisted Snowden in releasing the documents, was quick to respond tweeting “Susan Rice describes lying by intel officials as “inadvertantly” making “false representations” to Congress, FISA court”

Other notables commented thereafter, including Hollywood star John Cusack (see below)

Rice also asserted that NSA surveillance has been worth it and “the fact that we have not had a successful attack on our homeland since 9/11 should not be diminished.”
