how many of us know that the President and VP are authorized by statute to declassify anything without having to go through the usual process? This is why President Carter wasn't in any trouble when he spontaneously declassified stealth technology during his unsuccesful reelection campaign.

Look it up.

Like I said, he could bite the head off a baby and some would still defend it.

I agree that there is a contention that he has the "absolute" right to declassify anything, although its never been done before without the coordination with the agency that classifies it so noone is really sure.

Although I doubt Bush has the right to declassify things without telling anyone he's declassified it and then launch an investigation into the leaking of declassified information along with the subsequent jailing of a reporter that disseminated this declassified information. Something tells me that if this is true he is at a minimum guilty of withholding evidence and most likely obstruction of justice (not saying anything while a reporter was jailed). In my own opinion, I think a case for fraud could also be made.

That's so funny. I remember when Clinton won (the first time) and all the Republicans plastered 'Don't blame me, I voted for Bush' bumperstickers all over their cars. The Democrats came out with their rebuttal: 'He lost--get over it'. Ahh, the circle of life.
