Vice President Dick Cheney is drawing fire for his assertion that his office should not be subject to a presidential order requiring reports to the National Archives on the handling of classified information. Diane and her guests talk about those rules: what they’re for, to whom they apply, and the consequences of omissions from those records.

Guests

  • Steve Aftergood director of the Project on Government Secrecy at the Federation of American Scientists
  • David Rivkin attorney in private practice and former Justice Department official during the Reagan and George H.W. Bush administrations. Worked in the Office of the Vice President for Dan Quayle.
  • Peter Baker reporter, The New York Times
