Posted on 06/24/2006 3:24:43 PM PDT by just truth please
To the Lawyers in Free Republic land: How would a Citizens Action Group go about filing a lawsuit against the NY Times for their, seemingly, illegal release of classified Government information? It seems obvious the US Attorney General is not going to. Someone, some how needs to get this moving. Free Republic might be a good starting point.
The advertisers aren't as important when you realize that the Sulzbergs are not in this for the money, they use this rag as a paid platform for tyrany and treason. The class A shares have gone from $52 To $28. The effect on stockholders means nothing to them. They controll 91% of the Class B shares so they own, edit and publish. THEY NEED TO FROGMARCH!
I think Mary McCarthy would strongly disagree with you both that nothings been done.
It was. Last night on Fox, Judge Napolitano said that his sources told him that investigations were in progress that he guaranteed indictments were going to handed down.
An FR call to indict, not sue.
However, I believe a RICO case could be made against media (like against abortion clinic protesters).
Well ... I sure have lost sleep since this broke ...
truth be known it was more over anger and how to extract revenge vs fear of al-Q.
I would donate to get this rolling.
Proof: They do it over and over and over and over and over.
Eventually, their treason will lead to more deaths.
"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
it seems that the Times can't be sued for publishing, but they can sure go after the leaker, a federal employee who has to have a very high security clearance
Congress was briefed on this program. the leaker is probably a democrat senator or congressman, or staff of same.
>>>It seems obvious the US Attorney General is not going to.<<<
George Bush's Justice Department goes hard after republicans. Democrats, like Sandy Berger and the New York Times, get a mild rebuke.
Were Gun Manufacturers sued inspite of the second ammendment? They did'nt pull the trigger but...
The leaker needs to be hung and the Times owners need to be brought to justice!
First you have to identify the classified information. Is there something in particular that you have in mind?
Where does this come from?
You mean stupidity like quitting because some paper leaks something? That kind of stupidity?
When Bush grants amnesty to 15 or 20 million illegals and the GOP can only hope for 35-40% of their vote come back and talk to me about stupidity.
"You need to allege that the leaks make you less safe and cause you -- and if you make this a class action lawsuit millions of other Americans -- less safe in your person and cause you great emotional anguish."
If you can't do that, then all the money given for Homeland Security should be refunded.
Classified info is for authorized folks only. Thats why its classified. I dont which stsute its under but its definitley there..
No utter stupidity is wanting to cut+run in the WOT because of a newspaper leak. Are you a troll that was planted by the New York Slimes? You and them seem to have this pathologicaly incessant need to undermine our President and anything he's doing.
President Bush has been very tentative in responding to his critics. The hands off approach is probably a result of the new tone he wanted to establish in Washington at the beginning of his first term. Most people think that he is naïve to let his critics incessantly hammer away with immunity, but you could argue that its been a good strategy. While his opponents have been busy acting like fools, they have been unable to win elections. But the NY Times disclosing National Security Secrets is a whole other thing. The NY Times is fighting a war against the War on Terrorism and one day risks being complicit if a future terrorism attack is successful in the United States. The United States Attorney General must aggressively prosecute the leaker and the NY Times for treason in a time of war. Nothing less is shameful and dishonors the memory of all that have given their lives in the defense of their country since 9/11.
