If this is true — if the names of our operatives were intentionally revealed to enemies of the united states — the parties suspected should be charged with espionage and high treason. If found guilty, they should be imprisoned for life. If their divulging of information caused the loss of any American or Allied lives, they should be sentenced to death by firing squad....

Why do I get the idea that some of the people who revealed the identities of these agents are actually FROM the White House...?

Of course the MSM carried the Valerie Plame non-story ad nauseum, you won’t hear a thing about this from them.

Hell, they should be charged with treason and attempted murder. We are at war. This word game Leftists play about free speech needs to be checked by it's application towards enemy combatants - that's hardly an unjustified limit.

And I don't think the Founders would disagree. What would they have said if Benedict Arnold had invoked free speech to defend his discussions about West Point's vulnerabilities with the British?
