Neo-scandal

That term refers to a fact being treated as a scandal when it wasn't one. John Podhoretz discussed our current neo-scandal, the fact that George Bush authorized the leaking of elements of the National Intelligence Estimate. Lefties are swarming over it, which only demonstrates their hypocrisy, especially those who are journalists. It's an interesting story, how Scooter Libby gave information to Judy Miller from the NIE which contradicted Joe Wilson's contention that there was no shopping for Uranium by Iraq in Niger, and was authorized to do so by the President. The president is the one who is allowed to classify and declassify information, but his opponents seem to think that using that power to provide evidence against their scenarios is some kind of corruption.
