Topic: NewsBusters

Jamison Foser at County Fair notes a Jan. 7 NewsBusters post by Kerry Picket blasting Leon Panetta for his "pathetic excuses in 1996 over why several hundred FBI background reports on American citizens were obtained by Craig Livingstone." The problem, according to Foser:

Picket apparently doesn't realize that Panetta wasn't White House chief of staff when Craig Livingstone was hired, or when the files were obtained.  He was chief of staff in 1996, when the investigations began, which is why he commented on them.

So, to sum up: Leon Panetta wasn't responsible for "Filegate," in which no laws were broken.  As a result, Newsbusters' Kerry Picket thinks we can't count on Panetta to keep the nation safe.  Got it?
