Quotation of the Day for March 10, 2015

"Citizenfour could also demonstrate that General James Clapper, the director of national intelligence, came no closer than General Alexander to telling the truth. When asked, under oath, by Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon whether the NSA collects data on "millions or hundreds of millions of Americans," Clapper had answered: "Not wittingly."

"Clapper's statement was false in every possible sense of the words "not" and "wittingly.""

- David Bromwich, in his review of Citizenfour, a documentary about Edward Snowden directed by Laura Poitras.
