Condi In The Dark?

In a town hall meeting this morning, one State Department official complained State Department employees were always the last to know when there is a national security problem in DC (like planes headed toward the Capitol or anthrax threats).

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice empathized, saying:

It’s happened to me, all right? And not just here in the department. It’s happened to me at the White House, too, that I look and see something on TV and I think, Oh, did that happen? I wonder why I didn’t know?
