Doug Bandow writes on the growing security nightmare on Capitol Hill, where hundreds, yea thousands of people with no security clearances now handle America’s most vital secrets every day. And it’s not just the members (although Nancy Pelosi’s latest anti-American insanity, placing the hopelessly crooked Rep. William Jefferson on the Homeland Security Committee, demonstrates how very great a danger some of them are): it’s also their personal staffs, none of whom are required to have clearance.

Something has to be done. But it won’t be so long as the Democrats rule the roost, as Jefferson, Alcee Hastings, John Murtha, etc. make all too painfully clear.
