Santorum and WMDs

Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.)

When Pa. Sen. Rick Santorum went on Fox to make what turned out to be a bogus claim about WMDs in Iraq, did he violate federal law by holding classified documents up to the camera? Greg Sargent has more….

Crooks and Liars:

Greg Sargent picked up my original assertion the other night that Rick might have violated federal laws by holding up a classified document to the camera on H&C: I wrote

“If that is the document that’s classified, isn’t little Ricky breaking about a gazillion different federal laws by exposing them? I’ve taken the precaution of blackening it a bit. Of course, I’m no attorney, but I believe this is the law.”
