The House Intelligence Committee’s Terrible, Horrible, Very Bad Snowden Report

The House Intelligence Committee’s Terrible, Horrible, Very Bad Snowden Report: Late yesterday afternoon the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence released a three-page executive summary (four, if we count the splendid cover photo) of its two-year inquiry into Edward Snowden’s National Security Agency (NSA) disclosures. On first reading, I described it as an “aggressively dishonest” piece of work.

Well, I think I may have to write something up. The HPSCI report on Snowden is aggressively dishonest. https://t.co/Ec5EuD0fBS

With a day or so to reflect on it, I believe it’s worse than that. The report is not only one-sided, not only incurious, not only contemptuous of fact.

It is trifling.
