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.

There's no evidence that we should believe the NYT as they seek to pass off responsibility for the espionage to others.
