A new council designed to bring greater openness and transparency to the US intelligence services will soon meet for the first time. Behind closed doors. The Intelligence Transparency Council was formally established by director of national intelligence (DNI) James Clapper last week when he signed its charter [PDF]. It will …
"That enormous loss in trust between the American people and the intelligence services that serve them was in large part responsible for the creation of the new council."
Shouldn't that read "That enormous loss in trust between the American people and the intelligence services they serve"? Not that I'm suggesting the intelligence apparatus has anything at heart save what's best for the people; perish the very thought.
When you've only ever operated as a super-secretive agency where you consider yourself above the law and that everyone is a potential enemy, it's hard to change that momentum.
I'm sure they'll eventually release a report on their planned method to foster transparency to the Senate Intelligence committee, where it will be heavily redacted and ultimately released, begrudgingly, only after several years of denying requests made under the Freedom of Information act.
Of course, during all that time, the NSA, CIA, DHS, etc.. don't actually have to be transparent about anything.
The working methodology and resultant, for public consumption product of the James "Big Fat Liar" Clapper's, Intelligence Transparency Council would appear to be a bastard clone and drone of Sir John Chilcot's lovechild and Iraq Inquiry, which is being meticulously censored/vetted/reviewed to ensure that half truths prevail, to be spun as actual fact, presumably in order to try and guarantee how the true virtual nature of reality and how future major events are planned and self-actualised for media propagation and presentation is not more generally widely known. ......

What is the problem you think you imagine? ......... http://forums.theregister.co.uk/forum/1/2016/04/05/the_future_approach_with_caution/#c_2829146
This is a good example of hypocrisy. Clapper lied to Congress while Snowden who leaked the truth and is the champion of transparency is on exile and facing espionage charges. Let's reverse it. Snowden should come back to the US and lead the DNI while Clapper should go to jail for lying to Congress and to the American people under oath.
