rat, I agree with you 110%. But, in order to apply the law that is applicable to members of congress and the MSM we need to open the other books of laws, not the one that applies to you and me.....

Term limits will prevent this abuse of the law, I just don't know why so many don't see that?

The Times "sat" on this story for a year? The same year that Fitzgerald is investigating "leaks"? The same Fitzgerald that asked for more leeway in extending his investigation? Even with blinders on, this won't pass the sniff test.

I totally agree. Term limits would solve many problems.

Someone should tell this retard that we have a constitution, and it is not Congress's place to decide whether to pursue a criminal investigation, that is the executives! (So basic, yet somehow it needs to be repeated because these Democrats beleive the "constitution" is what they feel).

"The information may have been leaked to the media because they didn't agree with the program, Schumer said."

A true whistle-blower has to have a legal premise not just because they don't like it. Shumey knows who it is and it's someone in the congress. ROCKERFELLER.

Federal law was broken, violated, ignored, when someone released highly classified information. It makes no difference why they broke the law they should be identified and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. They should start by lining up everyone who had access to this information and making them take a polygraph test. Those tests should have started last week. I agree with you. My feeble attempt at humor applied to the Chuckster in general. I think he is pathetic, almost as bad as Boxer.

"..........it sounded a lot to me that we will find it is someone in the NSA at a lower level........."




If the situation were that simple, the Dims would have exposed the source themselves and have him/her/them on every friendly MSM outlet in the known universe singing Gregorian chants about The Evil George Bush.

From the way they are alternately scurrying for cover or trotting out faint hopes (I consider this Whistleblower ploy as almost too sophmorish to be believed), they know that the sources (more than one) are ALL not only well-known, but very far up in the Dim's power structure, have their fingerprints all over everything in sight and have yet to figure out which of their company get to fall on their sword to try to make this all go away.

IMHO, the entire lib establishment is in a full-blown four-alarm panic. Reminds me a lot of a bunch of rats caught in a trap.

What I want to know is: If there was only one camera available and Schumer and McCain were both there, would it be ok for McCain to torture Schumer to prevent him from using it?

WASHINGTON — The investigation into who leaked information about a National Security Agency secret wiretapping program on potential terror suspects needs to focus on the motivation behind the leak, a Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee said Sunday.

That's a new one. It's okay to commit a crime if you have the proper motivation. I do like the fact that this egomaniac Schumer is becoming the face of the Dem party.

Well now since motivation is the issue I got some questions that the answers might have motivated the leaker.


Wonder why it became such an immediate necessity to ban "torture"???? Could somebody fear being tortured???

Now who in the public mind does NSA equal??? Was there a perceived need to associate that who with spying on Americans for future political gain???

Who did the exposure of ABLE DANGER threaten the most???

Hillry said she is against spying on Americans. HA HA HA....

Again, you and many others are assuming this was an inside job at NSA or that some Senator or Representative in the know told the NYT.

What's wrong with thinking that it could be a case of old fashioned espionage, conducted by a foreign nation, or possibly even the NYT?


I doubt this was foreign espionage. I think the original NYT article noted they had two government officials as sources for the leak.

As No Truce With Kings said, if my senior senator (ugh!) really wants to know the motivation behind the leak, he should start by asking Senator Rockefeller. And perhaps Chuckie should be asking himself why the New York Times just happened to run the story on the same day the Patriot Act was to be reauthorized by the Senate. I doubt that was mere coincidence.

Schumer's position on this issue imparts a dangerous message to all of us -- and one that has embodied in it: all that is rotten in the Globalist, Moral-Equivalency, Multi-Cultural Community.

There is no right and wrong; no fixed standards for conduct; and NO PENALTY at all for TREASON!

Dam these low-life liberal scum! They will be the keystones to our ultimate demise as a viable culture -- rest assured!

Schumer is a seditious terrorist-sympathizer.
All he cares about is his commie-democrat party.
He should be forced to clean latrines.

The Justice Department on Friday opened an investigation into who leaked the information about the program, sparking debate over its threat to national security and presidential powers versus civil liberties.

Will the Repub administration or the DOJ, or GW Bush or the other spineless Repubs actually follow through with this and indict & prosecute the leaker(s) and see that they go to jail? (Hmmmm? Did the DOJ prosecute Sandy Berger for a felony & breach of national security for stealing classified documents? Nope, he was let off with nothing more than a misdemeanor). My bets are that the spineless cowardly Repubs will drop any prosecution or followup to find the leakers once the DimWits and left-wing media start to raise a serious stink about this.

"There are differences between felons and whistleblowers, and we ought to wait 'til the investigation occurs to decide what happened," Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., told "FOX News Sunday."

We should wait, huh????

Chuckie sure has changed his tune since the Plame/Wilson days

Got to laff at Sir Paul's hypocrisy:
Sir Paul McCartney

"I think the 'Just say no' mentality is so crazed. I saw a thing in a women's magazine the other day. 'He smokes cannabis, what am I to do? He laughs it off when I try to tell him, he says it's not really harmful...' Of course you're half hoping the advice will be, 'Well, you know it's not that harmful; if you love him, if you talk to him about it, tell him maybe he should keep it in the garden shed or something,' you know, a reasonable point of view. But of course it was, 'No, no, all drugs are bad. Librium's good, Valium's good. But cannabis, ooooh!' I hate that unreasoned attitude."

Reread that again and replace "eats meat" instead of "smokes cannabis". Paul sneaked a steak here and there in his years with Linda who advocated "just say no" towards meat. Why didn't he ever tell his wife to stop trying to control his life and accept his diet.

Everyone can have a motivation for endangering the nation, but that doesn't matter one whit to the danger they've created....possibly causing massive death.

Is it ok that they're pacifists, that they have a different view of the way our system should be run, that they think an election was bogus, that they don't like Laura Bush's hairdo.....what difference does it really make?

They endanger lives.

The fact that the Times SAT on the story for almost a year...ought to be enough worry alot of liberal senators. There is no rational explanation except that their reporter was going forward with his book and they'd look like fools if this came out that they held it for a year. Now that they've released it...they still look like fools...but at least its liberal fools.

"I believe Chukey fears jail sufficiently enough to have not participated in espionage against NSA."

Yes but not the the reason you may think. There are no TV cameras connected to the MSM in prison. Remember the most dangerous spot in the world is to be standing between up-Chucky and a TV camera.

Look, you can be a whistleblower with classified information. You just must blow the whistle to those with clearance to hear the information.

Since Democrats were informed of this NSA program, they were the ones responsible for blowing the whistle on its legality. They said nothing because they felt it was not in violation of any law.

By leaking this to the public, the entire country is in jeopardy. That is not whistleblowing, that is treason.
