Mysterious how the howls for finding leakers of secret information suddenly silence when a real crime has happened...

For a second I thougt Time Magazine was going to join the 'good guys'.
The President should immediately instruct the Justice Department to commence a full-scale investigation to determine who leaked this information, and see to it that those guilty are prosecuted to the full extent of applicable law. The investigation should be conducted by Justice's regular investigative staffno "special" or "independent" prosecutors wanted or needed; and one of it's primary and initial methods should be to subpoena management, editorial, and reportorial personnel at the New York Times under threat of jail time for contempt if they refuse to name the sources who provided this classified information to them.
This isn't about free speech anymore. Some people should be doing some hard time for compromising national security.

Investigate more than the Times. Investigate who leaked it to the Times.

"Obviously, classified information, harmful to the security of the United States and useful to its enemies, was illegally disclosed by one or more government employees. This is a serious matter, bordering on, if not actually constituting treason..."
The Slimes and the Leaker(s) ARE a serious threat to National Security, PERIOD.

Can I get an AMEN.
The leakers and the Times reporter must be lawyer shopping at this point. They should know Bush was not bluffing when he called the leaks illegal.

The new york times held the story for over 1 year.
According to my calculations, the leak occured late during the '04 campaign. A conincidence?????
The investigation should have begun and been concluded by now, with charges filed.

The DUmmies are cursing the NYT as well, although for not releasing the information. Seems we share something in common with the enemy.
Now revelations of secret, although carefully selective, interceptions of suspicious emails and phone calls between persons in the US and terror-connected individuals overseas...
Why was it necessary to do this spying without a warrant? Who determines that necessity? Who, ultimately, takes responsibility should that power be abused?
And a question for FReepers: Would you feel the same way if it was President Clinton?
I support the WoT wholeheartedly, but I also don't lightly give up my Constitutional rights.
