The staff counsel, the lawyer for the paper hadn’t heard anything about this, and he was brought into the room too, and kept saying to me, “Don’t tell them this.” He kept whispering in my ear, “We may have committed a felony here. Don’t tell them this,” and I said, “But I have to tell them. It’s their responsibility. They’re the editors.” I held nothing back. I outlined what we had and how explosive it was going to be. We were not going to compromise the national security of the United States, but it was full of political and historical secrets which were going to cause an explosion, because that’s what politicians care about. You could print a formula for a nuclear weapon, and that won’t really excite them, but if you print something that reflects on their reputations and says they made a mistake, why that drives them right through the wall.
