Senate Asks Intelligence Czar For Leak-Damage Investigation

Good. Let's get started with this already.

As I Was Saying... Belgium probing legality of SWIFT subpoenas.

Thanks, NYT! Thanks so much for serving as a hostile intelligence service providing damaging information to our enemies as well as our very-reluctant allies.

Pat Roberts, writer of the letter cited above, says that the next attack on the US may very well be laid at the feet of the NYT.

Peter King wants to throw the reporters in jail until they reveal their sources to a grand jury.

Some Congressmen calling for a tightening, toughening of espionage laws.

These updates from Brit Hume's show, on now.

Bump the Jail-O-Meter to...

20%

They're making all the right moves to gain the political support they need to throw these sonofabitches in jail for a year or five.

A Treasonous Bridge Too Far... Patterico dreams the impossible dream and ponders if the NYT and LAT realize they committed treason that the American public will not forgive.

The "treason" part they didn't mind, of course. They always understood that.

But it is possible it's dawning on them that this is all very, very close to publishing submarine positions as they're about to attack a target, and that the public may have had just about enough of their arrogance and hostility to American security.

The American public has a reflexive instict against prosecuting journalists. But that's all it is at this point-- reflexive. The more the public considers precisely what the NYT has done, the more they'll realize their reflexive support for press freedom should not apply in such a disgraceful case.
