#1 Ratcliffe has a tough act to follow.

#2 Actually, Grenell was sent to let the lightning out of the bottle so Ratliffe would not be under pressure coming in.

#3 Imagine if Grenell had been in the slot Bremer filled in Iraq.

#4 I have read many of the formerly 'classified documents' which have reached the internets. Having been trained (albeit decades ago) on Foreign Disclosure, I have seen absolutely nothing that would point to a breach of national security.

I can only conclude that the documents were erroneously classified. The justification or reason for the classifications should now be quite obvious.

#5 Over-classification has always been a bit of a problem, but probably 99% of the time not done on purpose. But E.O. 13526 is quite clear on deliberate over-classification. Oh, and EO is signed by someone named Obama.

#6 erroneously classified

It's erroneous only if you didn't mean to do it and receive no benefit from the "error".

Neither of those conditions apply.

#7 /\ A splitting of frog hairs, but quite accurate.

#8 "I can only conclude that the documents were erroneously classified."

You misspelled "purposely misclassified."
