My first question when I heard about Bush's leaking/declassification argument is that if this information was in the interest of national security, rather than simply selective misleading information picked to further a political advantage (built on a lie), why didn't he come right out in public and present it himself, instead of sneaking it to a New York Times reporter?

It's Josh's question too, leading him to summarize Bush's security view this way: "Classification is a tool of my political strategy."

Kevin Drum/Andrew Sullivan have more.
