White House denies Clapper will head "independent" NSA Review Group

A memo issued Monday by the White House said James Clapper, the United States director of national intelligence, is to form a review group...

However, in a confusing turnabout, the White House said on Tuesday that Clapper is not heading the independent review.

"Director Clapper will not be a part of the group, and is not leading or directing the group’s efforts," Caitlin Hayden, a White House spokeswoman, told The Hill newspaper on Tuesday.

"The White House is selecting the members of the Review Group, consulting appropriately with the Intelligence Community," added Hayden.
