NYT to Condi: We've "Kept Some of Your Secrets"

Earlier this week Condi Rice met with the editorial board of the New York Times and since it was an on-the-record chat, the State Department has made a transcript of the talk available for the public to read on the web.

I found the most compelling part of her chat to be when an unidentified person from the Times said the paper has not divulged some of her secrets, which seems a rather odd thing to admit to a high-ranking government official.

QUESTION: And we this paper has kept some of your secrets for you, too.

SECRETARY RICE: I understand that and I appreciate that. But I think that when it comes to you know, Im speaking to the leaks problem. I know this is a major, major issue in the journalistic community. But I can tell you from the point of view of somebody who has to (inaudible) security (inaudible), its a problem.

I cant tell you how many times people will say to me, my counterparts or, you know, other counterparts, "Well, you know, I really dont know if we should have this conversation because I dont know when its going to be exposed." Thats a problem. So you asked me if it was a problem and yeah, its a problem.
