I was struck by one paragraph in MSNBC's coverage of National Intelligence Directer Mike McConnell's surprising revelations about the Assministration's warrantless eavesdropping program:
At the end of the interview, McConnell cautioned reporter [El Paso Times] Chris Roberts that he should consider whether enemies of the U.S. could gain from the information he just shared in the interview, Roberts said. McConnell left it to the paper to decide what to publish.
So let me get this straight: the National Intelligence Director, in an on-the-record interview, reveals details about the FISA court and the Assministration's warrantless eavesdropping program that up to this point in time had been classified and withheld from not only the American public but also many if not most members of Congress, then he leaves it to a local reporter to decide if that information shoud remain secret?
Why does this guy still have a job?
