Mitt Romney and Tom Tancredo criticized ABC News for reporting on the administration’s covert plan to destabilize the Iranian regime, saying it puts lives at risk. ABC responded with the following statement: “In the six days since we first contacted the CIA and the White House, at no time did they indicate that broadcasting this report would jeopardize lives or operations on the ground. ABC News management gave them the repeated opportunity to make whatever objection they wanted to regarding our report. They chose not to.”
