Today, while Flynt Leverett was speaking at a program I was chairing at the New America Foundation, White House spokesman Tony Snow was fielding a question on Flynt Leverett’s charge that the White House was politicizing the “secrets clearing” process and punishing policy critics who had previously worked with classified policy material.
Snow’s response was hilarious. As Think Progress points out, Tony Snow denied that the White House censored Leverett after saying he knew nothing about the matter.
You can watch Tony Snow’s response at the Think Progress site.
Flynt Leverett’s speech today is airing repeatedly on C-Span and a digital video link is available here.
