Interesting: Barr Has Summarized a Controversial Legal Document Before
Back in 1989 William Barr issued a summary of an opinion of the Justice Departmentís Office of Legal Counsel, justifying the abduction of Manuel Noriega. He even went before congress and testified, but refused to give them the actual opinion. Several years later, they got around to subpoena the opinion and then the next President released it. Barr's "summary" was very misleading and left some major points out! Of course he was no longer in office because of the Bush 1 to Clinton transition, but was never charged with perjury or Contempt of Congress. So don't be surprised if Barr's "summary" is totally misleading. He's done it before.
