During a Tuesday hearing of the House Intelligence Committee, the National Security Agency’s director, Gen. Keith Alexander, gave Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Wichita, a rave review for one of his TV appearances a few months ago, when the congressman stood out from some of his colleagues for defending NSA surveillance and its congressional oversight. “When everybody was slamming something, saying ‘I didn’t know about A,’ ‘I didn’t know about B,’” Alexander told Pompeo, “you stepped forward and said, ‘I did. We looked at it. We did this right,’ and even though it was unpopular to do…. You and other members of the committee have all stood up and done that, and I think that’s huge, and what our nation expects of our congressional members and us.”
