Congress has discovered that the John Negoroponte-led National Intelligence Service has been relying on a terrorist-linked xeroxing firm to copy classified documents. The contract was discovered during routine budget analysis proceedings. Presidential spokesman Dan Bartlett says the firm, which publicly trades under the name “Holy War, Inc.,” only is responsible for copying high level briefing books, and therefore, the contract does not put the nation’s security at risk.

For his part, Bush vows to let it continue in spite of congressional opposition. He insists this is not to push a counter-confrontation with those in Congress who are confronting him again, like they have in the case of the aborted Dubai Ports deal, and on stem cell legislation, but a principled stand to maintain integrity of relationships government agencies have with copying services.
