The "least untruthful manner"

The director of national intelligence, James Clapper, said in an NBC interview that he had responded in the "least untruthful manner" possible when he denied in congressional hearings last year that the NSA collected data on millions of Americans.
European officials are reportedly not amused. One of the problems with the protestations of sufficient controls is that they are also identical to those which seriously bad people would make.

Also: Even if these are decent people in positions of power, there is every reason to believe that they will eventually be succeeded by people considerably less benign.
