Scorecard: Snowden-Related Publication of Verizon’s Name — 1. ODNI Publication of Verizon’s Name — 1.
Would you lookee here?
… And this afternoon, ODNI swapped out the document such that that passage now looks like this:
I guess maybe James Clapper’s office figured it would be hard to spew their defector propaganda if they themselves had published some of the same material.
We all know how Clapper strives to cover up his own crimes.
Except they did publish it.
Meaning ODNI has caused Verizon’s name to be published in conjunction with the phone dragnet as many times as Edward Snowden has. I wait with bated breath for the ill-considered “Traitor!!!” cries to be directed against Clapper.
Update: To be clear, as I noted on this post, I didn’t find this particular redaction error (I’ve got some more … interesting ones). Michael alerted me to it on Twitter. I just decided to point out that ODNI had tried to cover this up.
