Being in any branch of govt is a liability
Especially when the government is run by fools who put personal revenge above the good of the country. CIA operatives in a number of nations were put at risk by the Bush administration leaking the name of a CIA agent whose husband offended them.
Morris is fine with that, but releasing something potentially much less damaging is an outrage for him. But of course, things were different back then.
You know how it is.
