The story line we have been led to believe ... is false in every one of its dimensions

Senator Whitehouse delivered a powerful speech in the Senate on June 9. You may read the full text from The Congressional Record here.

An excerpt:
From open source and released information, here are some of the falsehoods that have been already debunked. I will warn you the record is bad, and the presumption of truth that executive officials and agencies should ordinarily enjoy is now hard to justify. We have been misled about nearly every aspect of this program.
Imagine my surprise. Not.

Dan Froomkin discusses all this here.
