Lie of the Year Award

131220-lie-spy-of-yearPolitiFact honored the president with its Lie of the Year award for saying “if you like your healthcare plan you can keep it”.

When Senator Ron Wyden asked National Intelligence Director James Clapper if NSA collected data on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans, Clapper answered, “No.”… “not wittingly”.

Now that we know NSA tracks everyone’s calls, including Angela Merkel’s, Andrea Mitchell asked Clapper why he lied. Clapper complained that Wyden had asked about secret operations in a public forum and that he answered him in the “least untruthful manner”.
