NY Times Trying to justify it's Collusion in TREASON

On the Subject of Leaks
Times OpEd
Published: January 4, 2006

Given the Bush administration's appetite for leak investigations (three are under way), this seems a good moment to try to clear away the fog around this issue.
They mean add their Spin to confuse the facts

A democratic society cannot long survive if whistle-blowers are criminally punished for revealing what those in power don't want the public to know - especially if it's unethical, illegal or unconstitutional behavior by top officials.
A Democratic society CANNOT survive when the PRESS no longer reports the TRUTH or FACTS but plays politics instead.

Reporters need to be able to protect these sources, regardless of whether the sources are motivated by policy disputes or nagging consciences. This is doubly important with an administration as dedicated as this one is to extreme secrecy.
BULLSHIT reporters are NOT Lawyers or Doctors and have NO immunity from revealing sources. Especially when Secrecy is paramount during WAR like we are in now. Especially when a newspaper ignores the TRUTH and FACTS.

The longest-running of the leak cases involves Valerie Wilson, a covert C.I.A. operative whose identity was leaked to the columnist Robert Novak.
Valerie Wilson was NOT a covert operative and that has been PROVEN by the independent councils investigation. Just another FACT the NY Times refuses to acknowledge or report.
The question there was whether the White House was using this information in an attempt to silence Mrs. Wilson's husband, a critic of the Iraq invasion, and in doing so violated a federal law against unmasking a covert operative.
No the FACTS are that the only reason Mrs. Wilsons name was let out was because after her husbands FALSE report in the PRESS about the Yellow Cake information. The Times said he was sent by Cheyney's office. Which is another LIE he was sent by his wife. That's what was revealed by the Special prosecuter and Why NO ONE was charged with LEAKING her name.
There is a world of difference between that case and a current one in which the administration is trying to find the sources of a New York Times report that President Bush secretly authorized spying on American citizens without warrants.
Yeah the difference is in the Plame case no crime was committed, and NO ONES lives were put in danger. In the current case charges of TREASON & ESPIONAGE could be charged and all our lives have been placed in danger. TERRORISTS who's calls were being monitored have now thanks to this leak are no longer using those phones.
The spying report was a classic attempt to give the public information it deserves to have.
No the only thing the Times did was give aid and comfort to TERRORISTS trying to KILL US.
The Valerie Wilson case began with a cynical effort by the administration to deflect public attention from hyped prewar intelligence on Iraq. The leak inquiry in that case ended up targeting the press, and led to the jailing of a Times reporter.
NO the Special prosecuter locked up stupid reporters that reported lies and then tried to refuse to tell the sources of those LIES. The whole Wilson story from his Newspaper Report to the LEAKING of his wife's name was PROVEN to be a lie and not a crime.
When the government does not want the public to know what it is doing, it often cites national security as the reason for secrecy. The nation's safety is obviously a most serious issue, but that very fact has caused this administration and many others to use it as a catch all for any matter it wants to keep secret, even if the underlying reason for the secrecy is to prevent embarrassment to the White House.
Nowhere does this case have ANYTHING to do with preventing embarrassment to this White House. It has EVERYTHING to do with STOPPING TERRORISTS.
The White House has yet to show that national security was harmed by the report on electronic spying, which did not reveal the existence of such surveillance - only how it was being done in a way that seems outside the law.
More BULLSHIT is the Times really so STUPID that they think if they tell TERRORISTS that their phone calls are being monitored that they will keep using those phones. As for being outside the Law I am glad the Times is now OVER-RULING 7 decades of court rulings that back this procedure up since the time of FDR.
Leak investigations are often designed to distract the public from the real issues by blaming the messenger. Take the third leak inquiry, into a Washington Post report on secret overseas C.I.A. camps where prisoners are tortured or shipped to other countries for torture. The administration said the reporting had damaged America's image. Actually, the secret detentions and torture did that.
More of the TIMES trying to DISTRACT the public from its collusion in releasing illegally Leaked Classified Information that has put all our lives in Danger.
Illegal spying and torture need to be investigated, not whistle-blowers and newspapers.
People that LEAK Classified information for political reasons that put the general publics lives in danger are NOT whistle blowers. The people that were being listened to were TERRORISTS not the opposite party or regular citizens. Newspapers that involve themselves in Espionage for political reasons should be shut down.

The NY Times is on a POLITICAL campaign to undermine the WAR, and damage the current administration. It is not reporting the TRUTH or the FACTS. It is engaged in illegal actions motivated by a political agenda, and the government should prosecute all that are involved. No matter how the Times tries to SPIN it's actions it has Aided TERRORISM inside this Country.
