Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) voiced the strongest support for the NSA chief and the agency’s efforts.

“We are not in a scrimmage. We are in a war ... and we are way behind the 8-ball” in terms of possible threats facing the United States, she said, adding the agency’s efforts were invaluable in keeping those threats at bay.


That of course was yesterday, this is today...

Landrieu asked people "to respect his privacy as we work through this challenging time for our family."
