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 staff—no "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.

Compared to the "outing" of Plame this looks like a real crime. Wanna bet it gets swept under the rug? Very few in the MSM have thus far questioned the NYTs timing of this story or the motive for printing it.

The good news is that the NYT is losing the last of its credibility. They are nothing but a hack newspaper shilling for the DNC.

Bingo! This is a deliberate act of exposing a classified program in an attempt to smear the current administration.It is without a doubt illegal. No 1st Amendment protection here.
