One practical way to address these leaks and their publication is to create viable information that is equally compelling yet lacking verifiability. This may be used as a way to sting the real leakers. Saturate the leak market with so much false information (which has the appearance of truth) that is of little value to the leakers because they cannot claim veracity for themselves. Whatever they leak may or may not be true, so publications will be less willing to publish what they hear.

In the meantime economic warfare against the NYT. Probably no one here subscribes to it, but it you do, get rid of it. Same for Boston Globe, which is owned by NYT. Take it a step further and let companies know that if they advertise in the NYT then we'll boycott their products.
I haven't read the NYT for about 40 years, ditto for Boston Globe but I can smell them from about 1500 miles away. NYT stock should go to zero, if people understand it's the enemy within.

The never like to talk about what happened in vietnam and cambodia after they defunded the war, do they?

That is not the way the New York Times reports the news when the liberals controlled both houses of congress and cut the funds.

Licorice: "Even us hamsters know that this is treason.

Cute but meaningless. 18 U.S.C. §798 is what you can charge those who leaked the information under. The Supreme Court ruled in New Your Times Co. v U.S. (aka Pentagon Papers case) that the First Amendment outweighed the Executive Branch's claim of secrecy, so the Times can print what information they get regardless.

Have you sent a letter to the administration yet? I believe there is already an investigation into the leaks for the WaPo's "secret prisons" story. We need to keep pressure on the administration and the congress to act and act strongly.

Just sent email to VP Cheney's office. I'm guessing it's GWB and not the VP who doesn't have the stomach to slam the MSM.

Not true. It is illegal to publish gov't secrets.

Not since the Supreme Court ruled that the First Amendment supercedes government claims of secrecy in the Pentagon Papers case.

When has the MSM shown any common sense or restraint about NOT publishing information detrimental to safety of citizens of The United States?

I imagine there are instances of them showing retraints but I can't think of any offhand.

In the old days, these traitors went directly to our enemies with the secrets. Now they just go to the NYSlimes. The rewards must be greater, and the time to get the information to our enemies is probably faster. Disgusting!!!

Talking about disgrace or information leaks is not enough. The administration needs to put a foot up the NY Slimes ass. They need to do more than talk but to take action against the traitors in our own country. As the old saying goes, Money talks and bullshit walks. Change money to action. President Bush needs to be able to shut down the NY Slimes and other newspaper companies for releasing sensitive information.
Also, I think Bush needs to fire most of the hold overs from Clinton years who are still in the State Department. You can bet that most of the information leaked is coming from Clinton lovers still holding high positions in State.
Fire and/or prosecute people who leak information that endanger the troops out of the country and the safety of the United States. If people in State were involved with the planning of D-Day back in 1945, you can bet you ass they would have leaked the details to the invasion to Hitler one way or another.

"Not since the Supreme Court ruled that the First Amendment supercedes government claims of secrecy in the Pentagon Papers case."

What the Supreme Court ruled, in the Pentagon Papers case, was that there could not be prior restraint (in this particular case, regarding a historical document). But Justices Stevens and White wrote in their opinions that this did not preclude the government from prosecuting after publication had actually taken place. The Nixon Administration decided not to go ahead and prosecute (maybe because they were all tied up with Watergate at the time).

"Some in the press, in particular The New York Times, have made the job of defending against further terrorist attacks more difficult by insisting on publishing detailed information about vital national security programs. "The first was the terrorist surveillance program. Sometimes the press calls it domestic surveillance, it is not domestic surveillance. It's a program aimed at the communications that are international in nature – at least one end of the communication has to be outside the United States, and one end has to be affiliated with or associated with al Qaeda. "The second program that The New York Times has now disclosed is the terrorist financial tracking program, just within about the last week or so. These are both good programs. They provide valuable intelligence. They are very carefully managed to safeguard the civil liberties of the American people. They have been successful in helping break up terrorist plots. They are done in accordance with the Constitution, and there has in both cases – both programs have been properly notified to the appropriate officials in the United States Congress. "The New York Times has now twice – two separate occasions – disclosed programs; both times they had been asked not to publish those stories by senior administration officials

Very well...let's fry and roast New York Times for publishing the Informations...question still remains; "WHO THE HELL LEAKED THE STORY" to the NYT...huh?

Let's get that MF and hang him/her dry for leaking the story.

Again that statute can be used against whoever leaked the information to the reporter, but the Times didn't break the law by printing the information that had been leaked to them. That's why the administration is complaining but nobody is talking about prosecuting anyone.
