When people find out that Michele Bachmann is on the House Intelligence Committee, their first response is usually, “I hope that’s the name of her Christian comedy improv troupe.”

The congresswoman from Minnesota seemed to reveal either classified or fictional information about Pakistan’s nuclear weapons program during a GOP presidential debate in 2011.

And last week in a committee meeting, she seemed to do the same thing when asking new CIA chief John Brennan about drone strikes in North Africa before the Benghazi attacks on September 11, 2012. She then went on to try to get Brennan and his colleagues to reveal secret information about Iran’s nuclear weapons program, but was twice told that the answer to her question was more suited for a closed session.

It’s unclear if they were protecting classified information or trying to save Mrs. Bachmann from more embarrassment.
