Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) isn’t promising that heads are going to roll over the recent audit of the NSA, showing that the agency has overstepped its legal authority thousands of times a year. He is acknowledging, though, that in Washington, D.C., heads have to roll before rogue agencies can be reformed. Unfortunately, the administration has a sad history of sending the wrong heads rolling and then rearranging a few desks in a meaningless “reassignment.”

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper might have lied to Congress about the NSA’s data collection efforts, but now that he’s been put in charge of overseeing the reform effort, we’re sure he’ll find someone to throw under the bus.
