“S” is for “Secret”

The Washington Post reports that the paragraph of the now infamous memo that mentioned Joseph Wilson's wife was marked "S" for "Secret"—not just "sensitive," as the Wall Street Journal previously reported. According to the WaPo, the designation is "a clear indication that any Bush administration official who read it should have been aware the information was classified, according to current and former government officials." And for the cherry atop the clandestine sundae: "The CIA classifies as 'secret' the names of officers whose identities are covert, according to former senior agency officials." Question: Did Scooter read it? If so, how did that affect Supreme Court nominee John Roberts' decision in Hamdan v. Rumsfeld?
