Giving Dana Priest a Pulitzer is like giving an SS Officer a marksmanship medal.
To any Media reading this: There is SO much info on this case and it's tentacles all over FreeRepublic. One thread has 2700 posts with TONS of facts and documents and lists of the coup-plotters.
You may want to link this to the outstanding backhoe compendium of related links.
Good article; thanks for posting. I sent the WAPO an email on Friday night after this story broke, requesting that they fire Priest immediately. I'm sure it went right into their delete folder. What these people are doing is beyond shameful -- they are working so hard to undermine this country and give aide and comfort to our enemies, they should all be in jail. I agree with Bill Bennet on this one; lock them up, throw away the key.
The fact that the information was classified material and possibly not even true means nothing to McCarthy. The only thing she cares about is the award, not the integrity that the award should reflect.
Pulitzers, Peabodys, Nobels...all have been essentially debased by political correctness, commercialization, and a leftisit agenda. In a way, it's kind of fitting....worthless accolades for worthless professions.
It's still nothing compared to the Walter Duranty's Pulitzer for his cover-up of Stalin's massacres.
I would think McCarthy could be brought up on TREASON charges and executed or deported ( to Iraq) preferably .
Krauthammer said it best (before we knew WHO it was): "Give'm the damn Pulitzer. Then send'm to prison for life."
These particular traitors are not only deliberately leaking classified information - they are falsifying it - in an attempt to undermine our government.
That is treason, pure and simple. But they get away with it because they're demRAts,
Meanwhile, they blithely get away with destroying Rep. careers - think Bork, Gingrich, Lott, DeLay...on innuendo.
The real criminals, the ones who are, with malice aforethought = and we know who they are - skate on with free passes.
It's time we screamed bloody murder and not let these acts fade into the ether - demand action be taken NOW
