"There is evidence that the White House has repeatedly failed to investigate security violations, take corrective action following breaches, and appropriately protect classified information"White House Press Secretary Perino lied on Monday, "The president and the vice president are complying with all the rules and regulations regarding the handling of classified material." In fact, White House security violations are likely widespread. From Rep. Waxman's letter to White House counsel Fred Fielding:
-- Rep. Henry Waxman, House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform
- White House security officials have been blocked from inspecting West Wing offices for compliance with procedures for handling classified information.
- The White House regularly ignored security breaches.
- The President’s top political advisor received a renewal of his security clearance despite presidential directives calling for the denial of security clearances for officials who misrepresent their involvement in security leaks.
- The White House has condoned widespread mismanagement at the White House Security Office.
