Selective Leaks

Christy takes on the selective leak issue.

There are a couple of details which are somewhat missing from the narrative. First is that some of what they were leaking were "facts" which were not true.

In addition to that, Scooter was flat out lying to Miller about what was in the classified NIE, claiming, according to her, that "the assessments of the classified estimate were even stronger than those in the unclassified version." The opposite was true, as the unclassified version basically left out all of the doubts and conflicting arguments.

So, not only where they selectively leaking classified information, they were doing so in a deceptive and dishonest fashion.
