Oh, So NOW the White House Wants an "Informed, Open [and] Deliberative Process"


For years, the US government secretly and illegally spied on its own citizens, and claimed in court that nobody could sue it for doing so because such a suit might reveal precisely how it secretly and illegally spied on its own citizens.

Then, Edward Snowden.

And after that, Justin Amash (R-MI) and John Conyers (D-MI).

So now, per White House flack Jay Carney:

This blunt approach is not the product of an informed, open or deliberative process .... We urge the House to reject the Amash amendment, and instead move forward with an approach that appropriately takes into account the need for a reasoned review of what tools can best secure the nation.

In other news, New Jersey's Arlend Hyseni will appeal his conviction on two counts of armed robbery, arguing against the justice system's blunt approach and suggesting the we should all instead move forward with an approach that appropriately takes into account his desire for lots and lots of cash.
