WASHINGTON (AP) - A former senior executive at the National Security Agency was charged Thursday with lying and obstruction of justice in an investigation of leaks of classified information to a newspaper. Federal prosecutors said Thomas Drake, 52, served as a source for many articles about the NSA in an unidentified newspaper, including articles that contained classified information.

lock ‘em up
I don’t have much good to say about our Justice Dept but if they nail these guys, kudos to them.
Say, fella, have you been down to the National Archives with Sandy Berger or are you just happy to see me?
“lock em up”
OTOH, would that some patriotic employee in Hawaii Department of Health would see fit to risk jail by leaking Obama’s long form BC. This wouldn’t pose a threat to national security unless, of course, there’s an imposter in the WH. In that case, martial law might ensue, followed by who knows what?
I’d like to know just what was leaked before condemning this person.
Perhaps it was the TRUTH about so called global warming data.
two words......... SANDY BERGER.....
try them for treason.
two other words...... VINCE FOSTER....
He became a hero to the lefties for doing the same thing.
Traitor ... how many more in our intel agencies were so consumed with BDS to the point of treasonous acts?

“The indictment alleges that Drake exchanged hundreds of e-mails with an unidentified reporter for a national newspaper and served as a source for its articles about Bush administration intelligence policies between February 2006 and November 2007, U.S. officials said.”
“””Two Other words: DANIEL ELLSBERG
He became a hero to the lefties for doing the same thing. “””
Two more; Dana Priest. She got a Pew-litzer for using stolen documents to write stuff.
Name the newspaper. Now.
It’d be great if we did substantiate an connection between Berger and Drake. I think Berger is pretty much layered in protection, though.
And I will never understand why the Bush admin didn’t prosecute him. Must’ve been some really damning stuff he stole.
I’d guess the NY Times.
ObaMAO will pardon him and then give him some sort of award.
And I will never understand why the Bush admin didnt prosecute him.
Made me mad that the jerk got away with it. Just another example of Bush being too nice? Or was the fear that a trial would reveal too much classified info? I am sure that whatever Berger stole was damning to Clinton and himself.
The most puzzling angle in the story,though, for me was the fact that there were no copies of the documents. How can that be?
Thanks for the ping.
If they want classified info, they just need to hang around bars where intelligence folks gather on the weekend. People get pretty loose when they’re drinking.
