The Irresponsible Captain: Aarontology: It's amazing how for the past 12 years the government has had the power to do the exact same thing to citizens with the total compliance and silence of the media, but the moment the same things happen to them, they raise a stink.^ This ^When people get power, it's hard to make them give it up, and silly to expect they won't exercise it as well.But 9/11, Terr'ists, Flag Pin, Freedom.
thetubameister: RexTalionis: Ned Stark: Because the press publishing information they've been given damn well shouldn't be a crime.It should never be a crime? Suppose a document filled with personal social security numbers was leaked to the press - should the press be able to publish the entire document to the public?That wouldn't be news.
Mugato: This iS all just an effort to distract the country from umbrellagate.
Profedius: Which do you think is worse an administration who knew nothing about it (assuming they are telling the truth) or an administration who ordered it and is now trying to distance themselves from it? Either way you go you fail which is pretty much standard operating procedure for this administration. Incompetence or injustice.
thetubameister: Dansker: thetubameister:Yeah! Where the hell do these people get this "freedom of the press" idea?? Sheesh!Freedom of the Press does not mean, nor has it ever meant, that you have the freedom to pass classified information to the press.I'm pretty sure they weren't passing the info to themselves... the Gov't needs to find it's employee. The individuals at the AP have every right to express whatever it knows or thinks...
jedihirsch: And so it goes on. And yet people somehow think this guy is on top of things, honest and genuine guy. I mean this guy is another typical Chicago politician who's a crooked as a $3 bill
Popcorn Johnny: Come on Fark, admit that your hero is capable of making a mistake.
DarnoKonrad: whitman00: A leak from the government outed a deep cover operative who was thiiissss close to a master bomb maker. The intel lost from this leak damaged our effort to fight terrorism. So, do conservatives support going after the leaker or not? What would they do different if they were in power is a great question that no one seems to be asking.I'm less interested in conservatives, and more interested in the "liberals" that were outraged about Plame being outed that now think this is some kind of outrage.Doesn't make any farking sense.
