"What many people are overlooking is that there ARE systems in place to balance these activities. There ARE reporting channels that cleared employees
can use to report fraud, waste, abuse, and illegal activities within government agencies. There ARE honorable and decent men and women who work within
these agencies who would never assume to act unilaterally - without congressional oversight and judicial review. Members of congress were briefed on
these activites, and the budgets for these activites (where congress can exercise its power over the executive branch) were approved.
What remains to be seen is if this joker actually tried to USE any of these reporting/failsafe systems before he went a ran his mouth to the most
anti-administration newspaper in this land. I smell book deals, TV interviews, and the lecture circuit.
The man is a confessed felon, IMHO. Send him to Ft. Leavenworth."
When the system fails, like it has, what should he do then? Our fore fathers never would have let the government keep secrets from the people.
That's why they came here, to get away from corrupt government. The man may have broken the law, but all of the executive branch have as well for
failing to enforce it, even among their own.
