Morgan Griffith Wants More than the Condensed Version

From U.S. Representative H. Morgan Griffith, R-VA-9:

"
Griffith: “Thanks Mr. President, but don’t send us the ‘condensed version’”
 
Friday, August 9, 2013 – Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) issued the following statement regarding President Obama’s statement today on improving oversight of the NSA’s surveillance activities:

“I look forward to seeing the FISA Court opinions and the reasoning of the court that the President indicated the Administration will release. While I understand they may need to protect names and other personal information, I hope they do not redact vital legal reasoning as I do not want to see a white-washed, Reader’s Digest condensed version of the court’s thought process on allowing the government to collect and store every American’s phone records.
 
“I appreciate the President’s willingness to work with Members of Congress on this issue as we seek to improve oversight of the NSA program and protect the freedoms and liberty of all Americans.”"
