As long as they have erasers on the ends of their pencils down in the Old Executive Office Building, they show they are just as human and fallible as the rest of us. History has shown us that some people, way outside the purview of the President, can indeed get carried away in their loyalty, competitive spirit and sense of righteousness-based situational ethics. Watergate taught us that. We learned.
I hope if there was wrongdoing, they really nail the culprit to the cross, Democrat OR Republican, as a warning that such behavior such as risking the lives of assets in the field that have been cultivated by NOCs, will not be tolerated in the future.
