Disgrace? Yes. Irresponsible? Definitely. But illegal? No, not according to the Supreme Court.

I am sorry but I must completely disagree with you. If the NYTs received child porn would they have a right to publish it? I don’t think so.

Unambiguously taking within its reach the publication of the NSA terrorist surveillance story (though arguably not the Times's more recent terrorist banking story), Section 798 reads, in part:

Whoever knowingly and willfully communicates, furnishes, transmits, or otherwise makes available to an unauthorized person, or publishes, or uses in any manner prejudicial to the safety or interest of the United States or for the benefit of any foreign government to the detriment of the United States any classified information . . . concerning the communication intelligence activities of the United States . . . shall be fined not more than $10,000 or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both [emphasis added].

The law is clear and the NYT must be brought to justice along with the leaker.

Bush condemns leak of terror finance info
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060626/ap_on_go_pr_wh/bush_terrorist_financing

President Bush on Monday sharply condemned the disclosure of a program to secretly monitor the financial transactions of suspected terrorists. "The disclosure of this program is disgraceful," he said.

"For people to leak that program and for a newspaper to publish it does great harm to the United States of America," Bush said, jabbing his finger for emphasis. He said the disclosure of the program "makes it harder to win this war on terror...."

"Congress was briefed and what we did was fully authorized under the law," Bush said, talking with reporters in the Roosevelt Room after meeting with groups that support U.S. troops in Iraq.

"We're at war with a bunch of people who want to hurt the United States of America," the president said. "What we were doing was the right thing."

"The American people expect this government to protect our constitutional liberties and at the same time make sure we understand what the terrorists are trying to do," Bush said. He said that to figure out what terrorists plan to do, "You try to follow their money. And that's exactly what we're doing and the fact that a newspaper disclosed it makes it harder to win this war on terror."

I think it will be dangerous for a Slimes reporter to step foot out of Manhattan.

Granted, but Prez Bush could've had an internal assessment of facts, before barking at the NYT for publishing it!

Prez Bush should've known that NYT will publish everything that will put his image in a negative way! Find the leaker and hang him/her!

I've been reading a book about Nazi Germany. It's funny how things don't change.

I've been thinking along those same lines lately. Just out of curiosity, what book are you reading?

In my previous life, as a USAF Master Sergeant, and following an extensive background investigation that included everything including an anal probe (just kidding) I was cleared for Top Secret, Extremely Sensitive Information/Single Integrated Operational Plan data (TS ESI/SIOP). The nature of the information I was cleared to see and handle was not unlike the two programs the NYT printed for the world to see.

I retired from the USAF in 1981. At the time of my retirement, a Colonel briefed me that I was sworn to secrecy for life concerning ALL aspects of the information that I had previously been cleared to handle. He further explained the punishments that I could expect, should I ever divulge any classified information.

I would never, under any circumstances, discuss or divulge the info that I had been privy to. Not because of the possible punishment. Rather, because taking an oath to keep my mouth shut means something to this former "Blue Suiter"!

Why in hell should the NYT be allowed to publish, against the CINC's request, Top Secret information with impunity? I would still be in Leavenworth, had I chosen to run my mouth! Close the NYT, LAT, and other TREASONOUS friggin old media down immediately!!! Arrest their owner, editors, reporter. Try them for treason!!! When their fair trial is over, jail their asses!!!

Its' really so simple, "W". Just do it!

Take it a step further and let companies know that if they advertise in the NYT then we'll boycott their products.

I notice Starbucks sells the NYT accross the nation in their coffee shops. Maybe giving up Starbucks would be a good move. Plus they are so liberal-hypocritical: They rail on about being environmentally conscious, but the sell their stuff in throwaway paper and plastic cups. They could save resources by encouraging bottled-water-drinking liberals to bring reusable cups. And those little coffee stirrers, what's up with them? When you get down to it, every cup of coffee uses a bleached-white paper cup, a white plastic lid made from petroleum, a paper insulating sleeve (which is a nod at conservation by being unbleached and made from recycled paper) and a little plastic or wooden coffee stirrer. If you add sugar, then its 2 to 5 little paper packages of sweetener.

My suggestion which I have posted before is to divert the remainder of New York's Homeland security grants to the capture of the person/persons who leaked this information to the New York Times.
The congressmen/women who were briefed about the money trail operationshould be interrogated first.

The editorial at this link is must reading re NYT.

http://isteve.blogspot.com/2005/04/history-is-written-not-so-much-by.html

Excerpt:

[Buried by the Times makes the most persuasive case against the paper, arguing that it failed in its journalistic mission by not explaining that Hitler was killing Jews because they were Jews. Leff counts 1,186 stories about the Jews of Europe in the paper between the war's start in 1939 and its conclusion in 1945. Only 26 of those stories made it to Page One, and only six of them explicitly stated that Jews were the main target of the Nazis.]

And:

[If not giving enough publicity to the Holocaust was "the century's bitterest journalistic failure," then what do you call the long series of outright lies the New York Times published denying Stalin's even more deadly campaigns of mass murder in the Thirties? The Times still takes credit for this pro-Stalin fiction every time it prints the list of Times writers to have won the Pulitzer Prize. Right there at the top of the list is Walter Duranty - 1932. Isn't it time to renounce that Pulitzer and issue an apology to the millions of surviving relatives?]

They gave Duranty a Pulitzer for lies. Duranty was supposedly a Satanist, btw. I kid you not.

"I do find it interesting that the President authorized the leak of Plame to contest the validity of Wilson. It was a waste of assets to formulate a weak retaliation of Wilsons repudiation of the administrations use of faulty intelligience."

I believe you have taken great liberties with facts. Therefore, all the rest of your tripe is discounted. Thanks for stopping by and good luck to you in the next terror attack on our (at least my) homeland.

Arrrrrrgh!! Would you people stop knee-jerk blaming the administration for everything under the sun. Sheesh! THERE IS ALREADY AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE FIRST NYT STORY THAT VIOLATED NATIONAL SECURITY.

Inquiry into leak of NSA spying program launched
Friday, December 30, 2005
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The Justice Department has opened an investigation into leaks to the media about the National Security Agency's classified domestic surveillance program.

I don't think the majority are blaming the Bush admin for this. People just want to see the words of disgust followed up with the hammer of the law.

But yes, there are investigations, but we cannot just focus on the leakers. It's time to nail the press to the wall as well.

The majority of negative posts I've seen today on the various threads about this story complain that the administration is not being tough enough, or the President and/or Treasury Secretary should throw everyone in jail, etc. That's the gist of the knee-jerk comments.

There already is an investigation underway about the previous leak/NYT betrayal of national security, and I wouldn't be at all surprised if this newest incident is added to the case. Unfortunately, we've learned that DC investigations literally take years to unfold.

But, don't forget Newt. He is also high on my list.

I would love to see a Condi/Newt or Newt/Condi Ticket in '08.

Knee jerking? How in hell do you say I'm knee jerking? I am aware that the AG is looking at the NYT for possible violations that could lead to charges being filed.

My point was, and is now, that I could have spent my life in prison for disclosing Top Secret information, yet the NYT, LAT and so on, get a pass.

Put your ass on the line for 20 years or so, then see how you feel about media lefties getting a pass for something you WOULD have been prosecuted for.
