Blue Girl, Red State has some excellent questions regarding the DC Madam scandal that has been slowing brewing in the background for the past few weeks. All the discussion I've seen so far has been on the political fallout here in the US. BGRS correctly asks though, what about national security. It is generally thought to be a breech of security for you highly cleared people to be engaging in risky behavior that can cause them legal or personal trouble. That opens people up to blackmail and being turned. What with Karl "multiple violations of basic security policy" Rove still holding his clearance, I guess folks have become inured. But it is a good question. Ask your Congressman.
