Edit of James R. Clapper[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia!

I found this edit. Unfortunately I had to remove it, because while you may observe those gestures in the video, the news article does not mention those aspects. Wikipedia relies on already published secondary sources (see WP:V on the verifiability principle), so we have to rely on them to make relevant statements. Unless a newspaper article discusses Clapper's body language during that hearing, we cannot include that information. Making an observation based on one's personal observation of Clapper's behavior in the video is Wikipedia:Original research which isn't allowed. This principle is important since the article is a biography of a living person (WP:BLP) WhisperToMe (talk) 20:31, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
