Can the New York Times be prosecuted for sedition?...
(they're leaking classified info during wartime)
It's very bad, when the nation's "most influential" newspaper, is actively giving aid and comfort to the enemy.
I understand your sentiment regarding the New York Times however you must concede that the Bush Administration has done absolutely NOTHING to stop the continueous weekly (sometimes daily) leaks coming out of the CIA and the Pentagon since before the Iraqi War. I think Bush should pay attention to the leakers within the government and respond to their illegal acts appropriately rather than shut down the free press. Furthermore, the Bush admisnistration's PR Department is becoming a nightmare, if you ask me. The White House spokeperson is a clown and should have stepped down long ago.
The New York Times lost its credibility with the American People long ago. But leakers in government... they are the real law breakers.
What happened? Sure, we got attacked by a bunch of terrorists but do we have to help them now? As I was led to believe, the objective of 'Atta and Co.' was to destroy our way of life. With the Patriot Act, the FEMA fiasco and a continual assault on the American Way by the media it doesn't seem like all that good an idea to allow a President--- ANY President to break the laws so many have died to uphold. While some might compare such actions to some sort of 'slippery slope,' it seems to me to be more like jumping into a black hole.
If he has broken the law, he needs to answer for it, just like you or I would.
