It's Recess-time Somewhere

A is for Apple, S is for Secret

I think the Bush Administration needs to work on their ABC's

A classified State Department memorandum central to a federal leak
investigation contained information about CIA officer Valerie Plame in a
paragraph marked "(S)" for secret, a clear indication that any Bush
administration official who read it should have been aware the information
was classified, according to current and former government officials.


[...]

The paragraph identifying her as the wife of former ambassador Joseph
C. Wilson IV was clearly marked to show that it contained classified
material at the "secret" level, two sources said. The CIA classifies as
"secret" the names of officers whose identities are covert, according to
former senior agency officials.


So now, we'll have no more of this "I didn't know she was undercover" hooey.
