Good morning AB and thanks for the thread.

Thanks for the disclaimer. I'll start posting it with the winner's pics provided by Snugs.
NYT's Keller comes on CBS. Will he be asked to defend NYT's
of the vacation homes of Dick Cheney and Don Rumsfeld [publishing maps, directions, pictures].It even warns would-be assassins that "there is a lens in the birdhouse." [Fox's Shouting Smith while talking to Israeli ambassador compared Israel's "buzzing" of Syrian Azzad's vacation home to "buzzing" Camp David].
MTP panelist Dana Priest is another shame.
Good morning, Alas. Bill Bennett is on C-Span right now in case no one has mentioned it.
Today will be Bill Bennett's day and deservedly so. He is on c-Span right now defending our values and few do it better.
One topic that came up, and again rightly so, was the leaking of state secrets by the press namely the NYT this time.
As a long time journalist we are taught to revere freedom of the pres which I do. This administration's dedication to that concept can hardly be challenged bearing in mind all the embedded journalists that have been allowed and other acknowledgments of the value of a free press.
However,freedom of the press during a time of war needs to be a different concept. A President, sec, of defense, Gen. or other leaders in time of war time judgments needs to be reepsected unequivocably.
When these leaders ask member of the press not to run stories, instead of demand that they stop these requests need to be obeyed without hesitation.
During a time of war there can only be a few leaders at the top, and last time I looked we do not want the NYT running the war. They need to obey like eveyone else.
Members of the press that do not comply with these requests need to be shut down as they were in WW II. There can be no compromise between a vague interpretation of what a free press is and the lives of our soldier fighting a viscous war.
This cannot be negotiated.
The bottom line is the welfare of the troops comes before the rights of the left wing press to continue their politicization of a war they don't like. We should not negotiate with the lives of our troops with a press hell bent on aiding and abetting the enemy.
I don't think I have heard about the 'outing' of homes of Rummy et al anywhere but on here - not even on Fox! (And Roger wonders why ratings are down.)
I was thinking about whether, if I were in charge, I would think twice about broadcasting that story too widely. I might think twice about it.
Add me to your ping list.
###### Specter is another shame. - USA Today ADMITS that it's story about NSA DATABASES of domestic phone calls is BASELESS.
Thanks AB, that was the intent.
I ran it by Rodguy911 too for what could be said. I've been playing with putting it in a box, not well, so maybe snugs or someone else could do that if you wanted it that way.
Did you hear the earlier caller, a black guy, who was making wild claims against Bennett and whites? He was saying he would bet this or that was not in the book, and Bennett said it was. LOL
It would appear that Sen. Specter made quite the fool of himself and that the VP's interference prevented him from making it even worse. Specter owes Dick Cheney a thank you.
Thanks, Rod. Bill Bennett is one sane voice this sunday on MTP too. He is getting regular invites from CNN too, without the so-called fair & balanced dem. Fox should get a clue.
He also acknowledged that he didn't read, which I guess would have been apparent from the ignorance of his comments. It is really time to get over slavery, way past time.
