The Perfect Storm of Secrecy and Incompetence

Is this true?

Josh Marshall suggests that the only known instance of espionage actually occuring within the White House, ever, happened right under Dick Cheney's nose.

t seems now largely to have been forgotten. But let's not forget the case of Leandro Aragoncillo, the naturalized US citizen of filipino descent who engaged in espionage on behalf of opposition leaders in his native country while worked as a Marine security official in Vice President Cheney's office....

Perhaps even more revealing, Aragoncillo was originally tasked to the Veep's office in 1999 when Vice President Gore was still in office. But he apparently only began snatching classified documents after Cheney showed up.

The only such incident in all of American history?

Why am I not surprised?
