White House searching CRS Honduras Report

[UPDATED -- State Department also searching on Gutierrez. See below]

Norma C. Gutierrez may wish to brush up her resume, as somebody in the White House noticed the Congressional Research Service report and is searching for the string, "crs norma c. gutierrez".

White House search hit

Ms. Gutierrez wrote the following, which was quoted in a recent Wall Street Journal piece:
"Available sources indicate that the judicial and legislative branches applied constitutional and statutory law in the case against President Zelaya in a manner that was judged by the Honduran authorities from both branches of the government to be in accordance with the Honduran legal system."

Given that I don't even seem to appear in the first hundred google hits for that string, the Executive Office of the President seems to be digging quite deeply on this.

Ignorance can no longer be an excuse for this tragically mistaken policy. Obama needs to man up and fire some people at State. Possibly the Secretary.

If instead we find that Ms. Gutierrez suddenly finds herself out of a job, we will know who to blame.

***** Update *****
Department of State is also suddenly curious about Ms. Gutierrez:

they're looking for information on that lady. it's personal. they want to see what her angle is, whether they can find some dirt on her. Why is she the story?

and while I'm sure they found nothing of particular interest on my post, visit length of 0 indicates no further clicks (or outclicks), not eyeball time on the page.
