A lot of anti-Bush leakers in this country could use similar treatment.
‘Bout freekin’ time people violating the law and leaking classified info (to bash Bush) get some punishment.
These wouldn’t be the Downing Street Memo that DU used to have orgasms over would they?
I don’t know, but they’re idiots if it’s ‘that’ memo because that memo proved beyond any doubt that they were not ‘lying’ because in it, they talked of the wmd threat saddam posed.
The idiots on the left decided to ignore that and concentrate on one paticular phrase that could be interpreted in a couple of contrasting ways. The idiots.
This might be the al jazeera memo. I think.
No. It’s a 2004 meeting where the possibility of bombing al-QuaedaJazeera was discussed.
Wow. That was fast.
Why did it take so long for the Sandy Berger investigation?
So, what about leaky leahy? Does he get punished too?
On a cold day in a hot place.
Exactly. Leaky Leahy comes to mind. Sandy Burglar needs some jail time. Many more on the anti-Bush list who regularly leak stuff to the press.
"....According to The Mirror, the transcript is the document which allegedly turned up in the constituency office of former Labour MP Tony Clarke in May 2004. Mr Clarke - who voted against the Iraq War and lost his Northampton South seat in this May's election - said he returned the document to the government because of fears British troops' lives could be put at risk if it became public.
Cabinet Office civil servant David Keogh has been charged under the Official Secrets Act of passing it to Mr Clarke's former researcher Leo O'Connor.
Both men are bailed to appear at Bow Street Magistrates Court next week.
Mr Clarke refused to discuss the contents of the document which he received, telling the Press Association his priority was supporting Mr O'Connor, who he said did "exactly the right thing" in bringing it to his attention. " ------- BBC
