Disclosed Location.

"...Vice President Joe Biden, well-known for his verbal gaffes, may have finally outdone himself, divulging potentially classified information meant to save the life of a sitting vice president.

According to a report, while recently attending the Gridiron Club dinner in Washington, an annual event where powerful politicians and media elite get a chance to cozy up to one another, Biden told his dinnermates about the existence of a secret bunker under the old U.S. Naval Observatory, which is now the home of the vice president.

The bunker is believed to be the secure, undisclosed location former Vice President Dick Cheney remained under protection in secret after the 9/11 attacks..." (source)

I have a few conflicting thoughts on this:
1) I'm pretty sure this bunker location was deemed "classified information" --most likely more so than a desk jockey at the CIA...so if there was an investigation over Valerie Plame, then there should definitely be one over this and Biden should end up where Scooter Libby was...

2) On second thought, Biden only screwed himself here...so why be petty and call for a meaningless investigation like they always do. It's his hideout now. I say that he should have to use this disclosed location should our country come under attack again. Taxpayer monies should not be used to build another one because he would only blab again...

3) At third glance, should something happen to BO AND the gaffe king, Nancy Pelosi would be President and as much as I long to see a woman in the White House...I couldn't stand THAT woman there.

4) So are we doomed to build a new and undisclosed location and then require Obama's teleprompter to guide the VP too?
