The Director of National Intelligence Lt. General James R. Clapper has allegedly altered a Daryl Cagle cartoon during a presentation. The Washington Post reports:
A final slide showed he was under no illusions about the pressure and expectations he faced. He had adapted a cartoon by Daryl Cagle of Slate.com depicting a grim Clapper in an Uncle Sam hat at the wheel of a car, labeled ?Leading the IC: A Re-set.? The car is packed with children imploring: ?Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet??
What happened to the Obama Administration?s professed respect for copyrights? There is little more offensive to an editorial cartoonist than to have his cartoon stolen and altered to make a different point.
