Now, that name may not mean anything to the average citizen of your country, who has better things to do with his or her time than know who represents Florida's Twenty-third Congressional District in the the House of Representatives, but you are the head of an important and top secret government agency and it’s part of your job description to know who Congressman Hastings is. Therefore, you already know that in a former incarnation Congressman Hastings was Justice Hastings of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida, and that as such he was only the sixth Federal judge in American judicial history to be impeached by the Senate on charges of perjury and bribery. Given that Rep. Hastings has already demonstrated a problem with peculation and malfeasance, do you (a) share all of your operational secrets with the Americans, confident that Rep. Hastings has learned his lesson, (b) tell the Americans as little as humanly possible, or (c) tell the Americans that they should check out the horoscopes in the Washington Post if they want to find out what happens in the world tomorrow?
UPDATE: Well, this will remain an experiment, as I see on Instapundit that Rep. Hastings is not going to be the next chairman of the House Intelligence Oversight Committee. And all of God's espionage agents sighed, Hallelujah!
