Bill Clinton may have waffled about what “is” is, but his inability to keep it in his pants never killed anyone. George Bush’s leaks are another story. White House spokesman Scott McClellan has to clean up after his boss, and the latest attempt at mop up is a doozie.
“Declassifying information and providing it to the public when it is in the public interest is one thing,” McClellan said.
“But leaking classified information that could compromise our national security is something that is very serious, and there’s a distinction,” he said.
Ummm hmmmm. See, it really does depend what “is” is.
