No real insight
Well, the guy's certainly not going to say, "You know what?  Looking back, it was a total waste of public funds and resources, and we should have spent our time better," even if the information they retrieved turned out to be a bust.  Gotta put your happy PR face on.

"Litigation is a terrible place to have any kind of discussion about a complicated policy issue. Especially one that touches on our values...,"

Well, with the government and their 'concerns' over 'security', it's the ONLY place to have a PUBLIC discussion, it seems. And even then they can get it put into a secret court if they desire. And it's not like they have any kind of real discussion about this in congress, where policy matters are supposed to be addressed, since all those folks love surveillance and lack of privacy, as long as they're excluded.
