"Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please." (Mark Twain)

(1) In what sense was the information really "declassified" when it was revealed only to a few sympathetic journalists through backdoor channels, rather than being publicly disseminated?
(2) Since Scooter's problems arise from the leaking of information regarding an undercover CIA agent, and not from the leaking of the NIE that Chimpy is talking about here, who cares?
(3) What does any of this have to do with Scooter's perjury - you know, the actual crime he is alleged to have committed?
As smokescreens go, I don't think this is a particularly good one. But I'm sure that failure won't stop them from trying again.
