Quote: "First and foremost, every White House person who has got access to classified information knows that you should not ever transmit any classified material either by cellulor phone, non-protected phone, or by beeper. That is drilled into us fairly well. And as a general proposition, we are alerted to the sensitivity of all electronic communications - walkie-talkies, cellular phones, and beepers. And I think there are probably some staffers who now had a fairly painful reminder that these are indeed public transmissions. So their private matters are now more widely known. It probably will be a useful deterrent." - White House Press Secretary Mike McCurry commenting September 22, 1997 on the release by 2600 staffers of White House pager transmissions. He seems to agree with us that these are indeed "public transmissions." Maybe he can get the word to Louis Freeh.
Notes: Page 18 displays a fax, 22 displays a confidential memo ripped in two, page 29 displays an FOIA response.
