    •  Actually it doesn't. (0+ / 0-)

      First, you may not have signed anything or even been aware that anything was secret.
      Second, signing and agreement -- a contract -- does not make you a law breaker.  It makes you a contract breacher.  Not the same thing.

      •  now you are just making things up (0+ / 0-)

        anyone working for the adminstration or who had access to that information would have undoubtly signed an NDA

        Your notice of 'breaking the law' is also very strange. It is against the law to leak classified information, if you are a whistleblower exposing law breaking an exception is made that's how it is.

        •  It is against the law to knowingly disclose (0+ / 0-)

          information classified by the federal government as secret.

          In this case, somebody almost certainly broke the law.

          In a more general sense, that's not a given.
