A Colorado congressman revealed classified information about North Korea.

That's according to a top US intelligence official today.

You may remember what Colorado congressman Doug Lamborn said last week.

Today the Director Of National Intelligence said that paragraph had been accidentally labeled as "unclassified" when in fact it was supposed to be kept secret.

It had been mislabeled by the defense intelligence agency.

We called congressman Lamborn's office and a spokesperson told us, what's happening here is the DIA is admitting they messed up. When Congressman Lamborn read the quote in his committee it was clearly marked unclassified. That's an issue DIA will have to address internally.
