President Bush will release most of the documents related to Roberts’s work in the Reagan administration but not those with “national security implications”
Today in the White House Press briefing, a reporter asked a very good question about this issue:
QUESTION: Can I just ask a quick follow-up on that? Do you consider Iran-Contra a national security issue?
MCCLELLAN: I haven’t even thought about that, to tell you the truth.
This really goes to the larger question: is the White House’s quixotic selective disclosure policy designed to cover-up damaging information?
