I reviewed the sequence from the episode 10 seconds ago. All Jerry asked before the interview started was "Do you understand that we are talking about a classified mission and that it did happen". Stephen Root says "yes", and then Jerry turned the camera on.
It was a shit preinterview, because Jerry thought he general was squirely and that Charlie and Mac had already forced the truth out of him.
(Do I now have to go back and find the Charlie/Mac/General conversation?)
The white house unclassified all the paperwork behind Genoa after the news report aired.
Which was a massive "Go fuck yourself".
It was all above board, or a massive trick.
But the news Night people seemed to believe that it was above board.
