If we are going to try to arrest someone for telling the American people the truth, we should at least be arresting someone for lying to them. James Clapper is a disgrace and if Obama wants to save any face at all he would at least fire him.

If President Obama really does welcome a debate about the scope of the U.S. surveillance program, a good first step would be to fire Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

Back at an open congressional hearing on March 12, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) asked Clapper, “Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?” Clapper replied, “No sir … not wittingly.” As we all now know, he was lying.
