NSA Lawsuit Proves Media Harmed National Security

Patterico nails an angle I don't think occurred to many.

The plaintiffs in the suit against the govenrment alleged that they were "harmed" because their clients overseas did not feel free to speak since the disclosure of the NSA intercept program.

Is this not proof of the allegation that the NYT undermined America's national security?

If the plaintiffs are lying, the suit must be dismissed as they have no standing.

If they're telling the truth, the NYT has changed the behavior of foreign terrorists and made it more difficult to monitor them.

Via Michelle, who's back from vacation, and has more.
