The leak story raises questions. Here are some:
- Are there no barriers to a government contractor searching for a classified document, printing it, and taking it home?
- Do contractors with clearance not know that printed documents can be traced? Why not?
- Why was that document classified? Surely there was no need to keep it secret from Russia. Who was not to know?
I know from experience that documents are sometimes improperly classified to avoid embarrassing a government agency. I wonder if this was an instance of that.
