Dear Senator Roberts:

Bob Woodward's book Bush At War relies heavily on interviews with George Tenet, the Director of Central Intelligence, who provided Woodward with access to top-secret intelligence memos and notes, including the highly secret President's Daily Briefing. Obviously safeguards for the release of classified information have been violated in this case. Since a low-level Department of Energy employee has been sentenced to a year in prison for giving a British journalist "sensitive" unclassified information, it is hard to see how the rules for protecting Top Secret information can be so easily flouted by senior officials. I suggest that you have an inquiry to determine if security procedures were violated in providing this highly classified information to Woodward. Or is he the one exception to the rule that no one is above the law?
