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.

“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.

“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.”

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.

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.
