Here’s a hint. After giving Cheney the softball interview he craved on the Whittington shooting, Hume turned to more substantive matters, asking about leaks of classified information.
There have been two leaks, one that pertained to possible facilities in Europe; and another that pertained to this NSA matter. There are officials who have had various characterizations of the degree of damage done by those. How would you characterize the damage done by those two reports?
“Possible facilities in Europe”? And what sort of facilities might those be, Brit? Lavatories, perhaps?
And if the “facilities” were mythical rather than actual, then no secret was released, right? So what’s with “possible”?
I know I’m dating myself, dammit, but I remember when “Brit Hume” was the name of a reporter.
