    Cabinet level officers do this all the time in every administration in every democratic country in the world. Usually it's either to delay disclosure of a time sensitive matter or it's to not disclose something believed to be of national security importance. Sometimes the media with the leak agrees, sometimes the media with the leak doesn't agree and runs with their story. No big news here.

    One has to question why this is "breaking news" almost a decade after Ms. Rice left the White House. Hence, my comment. Just another in a string of attempts to make the issue Bush and all things related to Bush in order to distract from the utter failure currently sitting in the Oval Office.

    Unlike the Obama administration and the bin Laden raid, most administrations don't make a habit of burning valuable intel sources.

    A report on the progress of CIA efforts to slow Iran's nuclear program would likely contain details that Iran could easily triangulate back to a source.

    Yes, of course. If you bothered to read the thread you can very well see that I agreed to that possibility.

You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    She has no chance now that she has been identified as a killer in a NY Times story...

    She's got a better job as a college professor, as Ebola used to be, and the 13th vote on a male sports panel .

    Call me naďve and romantic, but I prefer the arrangement in which (like it used to be) the media confronted the government about its criminal behavior. I like that situation much better than the present situation in which the media facilitates and covers up government criminal activity.

    Things were that way even as recently as my generation's Pentagon Papers thing.

    Though you may support an arrangement in which the government approves all stories printed, I do not.
