nadler issues statement regarding cnet story

I think that's all she wrot

Josh Marshall- June 16, 2013, 1:25 PM
We now have a statement from Rep. Nadler which seems to debunk the CNET piece which I discussed in the earlier post.

“I am pleased that the administration has reiterated that, as I have always believed, the NSA cannot listen to the content of Americans’ phone calls without a specific warrant.”

This is needless to say still a somewhat cryptic quote, leaving unclear who misunderstood who. But it seems to say definitively that the central claim in the CNET article is incorrect.

1. It seems to say that he will go with what the admin is saying...

but yes, it is a weird way to word it.

2. politicians are adverse to admitting mistakes

Nadler probably doesn't want to seem to be admitting to making a mistake, so he released this cryptically worded statement in the hopes that his role in this story will be quickly forgotten- future elections may be on his mind.
