They have done something so horrible that it would bring wrath to our nation!
That does not mean that they have compromised our national security it really means that they did not belong in the job in the first place and have done something so terrible that not only would they lose their position or career but they also would likely be imprisoned!
They are using this act to protect themselves from prison; not our national security.
And they do not believe anyone will figure it out.
We could not have hired a less responsible government than that if we tried to. It reads like situational comedy based on the incompetent.
It reads like I committed a great crime while in office but you can't know about it because I labeled it as something that would compromise national security rather than my own personal security!
Can't get any worse than that can we?
