Sweet Little Lies

We recently wrote about the NSA's highly questionable "talking points" about the various NSA surveillance programs that have leaked. Senators Ron Wyden and Mark Udall -- who have long been leading the fight to get people to understand how the NSA was spying on Americans -- have now sent a letter to NSA boss Keith Alexander saying that the "facts" in the NSA's "fact sheets" do not, in fact, appear to be factual, and asking him to correct the errors.
The questionable points are not available - they're classified because, y'know, national security terrorist intelligence etc. - but Senators Wyden and Udall do explictly reference a 'misleading' statement that contradicts statements a letter that the DNI sent them two years ago.

Mr. Masnick sums it up nicely:
So, basically: were you lying to us then, or are you lying to us now?
