Cheney says he has OK to declassify info -- Page 1 -- TimesUnion.com

Cheney says he has OK to declassify info -- Page 1 -- TimesUnion.com:
"An authorization defense in the CIA leak case would mean that 'much of what Libby was trying to do was aid and protect his boss Cheney,' Ray suggested. The downside to employing such a approach is that it 'almost comes with a defense that I did it.'"

Cheney says an executive order gave him permission to declassify whatever he wanted to. So, it was okay for Cheney to reveal Plame's identity because he and Shrub said it was okay? Shouldn't somebody else, say maybe a trained intelligence officer or the Senate Intelligence Committee for instance, have a say in what is and is not classified? Cheney can't be trusted with a gun, let alone national security. This bites!
