An eye raising article
over at ABC News has me asking some questions.
The article states:
...the alleged spy worked undetected at the White House for almost three years. Leandro Aragoncillo, 46, was a U.S. Marine most recently assigned to the staff of Vice President Dick Cheney.
and further states:
In 2000, Aragoncillo worked on the staff of then-Vice President Al Gore. When interviewed by Philippine television, he remarked how valued Philippine employees were at the White House.
and concludes with:
Since that arrest, officials say Aragoncillo has started to cooperate. He has admitted to spying while working on the staff of Vice President Cheney's office.
What I want to know is this: If this man was hired under Gore in 2000, exactly how long has he been a spy? The article says he worked undetected at the white house for nearly 3 years, but he was hired in 2000, which - and don't get me wrong.. I am no great mathematition - according to my math is 5 going on 6 years. Perhaps he did not work consecutive years... I am curious how this is going to play out in the press. I hope my questions are addressed.
