    Perhaps. There's probably a lot of information that I am sure the government would rather keep to themselves -- sensitive or not. But I doubt it typically goes as high as the Secretary of State -- especially making a personal trip.

    Putin holds Rice in awe. He fears her but highly respects her.
    I am sure Rice is competent and knowledgable when it comes to Russia, but to say the racist, misogynistic and homophobic Putin is in awe is laughable at best.

    At the time this incident reportedly occurred, Ms. Rice was not Secretary of State. She was National Security Adviser.

    Of course, the issue of sensitive information reaching the press is not a new one. For example, here's a joke about such matters from a Ford Administration meeting related to Lebanon's civil war that was held on March 23, 1976:

    Secretary of State Kissinger: What was the classification?

    Undersecretary of State Sisco: The highest—that means it will take at least 48 hours to reach the New York Times.

    Frankly I think both of you should tone it down, because there is no way to know how much awe he feels.

    It's a heck of a lot better than Obama's resume was.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    Sounds like Abramson killed the story and is blaming it on Rice. If all Rice did was request this, I don't see the problem. If that request had special teeth, I would. Abramson still had the choice.

    Do you even know the definition of awe ?

    It's something you fear but respect.

    President Esienhower was held in awe by the Soviet Union when he was POTUS. They respected him as being a military commander who was CnC of Allied Forces during WW ll but feared him because his stance against communist expansion in the world.
