    Sure is alotta information being leaked this year. For decades, no significant leaks and, boom, truckloads of leaked info.

    Looks like someone is either doing a piss poor job of protecting this info, or those same people are leaking the info, intentionally.

    By preventing the information from being leaked, to begin with. He's the hookin' bull, therefore he's fully responsible for the lack of security that allowed these leaks to take place.

    More time spent actually doing his job and less time playing b-ball, maybe? What would you suggest?


    what rank would you have doing the grunt work instead of the pfc?
    Depends on the sensitivty of the information that person is dealing with.


    [quote]you have to be kidding. it was bush's white house that was committing the leaks. or have you forgotten about the intentional disclosure of a covert CIA agent, a leak made purely for partisan politics[/qipte]

    I certainly recall the Leftists insisting that heads roll, because a simple analyst at CIA as ID'ed by a reporter. Remember the outrage over that?

    This information may have exposed hundreds of agents. But, now, it's all of a sudden, "free speech", and anyone that suggests that our intel and it's sources be kept secure, is now a facist-conservative.


    point out what would be found treasonable
    Illegally leaking classified docs is considered treason. The Rosenbergs gave nuke secrets to the Soviets. That's treason. Robert Hanssen sold secret material to the Soviets. That's also treason.


    do you have a cite indicating he has actually said that; if so, please post it as i have not seen reference to such a statement until reading your post
    Whatelse could be Assuage's motivations? His high moral tone?

    why, because he prints factual information that our government and others would rather be concealed from public view
    why are you so opposed to the truth being exposed that you would be willing to kill someone to accomplish that end?
    Because, exposing that information could get innocent Americans killed and their lives are worth far more than the life of someone who would endanger their safety.

    then you must consider me your enemy as i appreciate and applaud those who have the courage and means to blow the whistle, exposing wrongdoing
    Why do you hate your country?

    you say there is knowledge all of this [whistle blowing, it is presumed] could have been prevented. again, explain how it could have been silenced
    Assuage could have died in a car wreck, months ago, thereby sending a very powerful message to anyone else that would do the same thing.

    why is this any different than was imposed by the nazis and communists?
    Don't you see you fool?! If anyone knows that the U.S. government bribed an island nation with millions to accept released prisoners from Gitmo then our national security will be in danger! Our government must be free to bribe whoever it wants in order to achieve its policy objectives!

    Yeah, like the non-Taliban, Taliban leader.

    I thought the world would change their view of America when Obama was elected?

    They've known this stuff was in the hands of the enemy for almost half a year... and they couldn't find a way to stop this???

    Read the whole article, there's a ****-ton of LOL in it -- especially the part where the State Department said that the reason this kind of a leak could happen was 9/11.

    I guess we're supposed to accept that as a valid excuse, despite the fact that the government has had 9+ years to figure this stuff out.
    Not much here that wasn't already known by those who read Reuters and the Guardian daily.

    I don't think this guy will ever leave prison again. He ought to be charged with treason and executed.

    Agreed.
    Only in a pine box. And when he croaks he should be buried in some deep, anonymous hole somewhere in Cuba.
    If this isn't deserving of execution for treason, what the hell is?
    He's put scores of lives at stake, and has damaged valuable sources. I don't think there would be any shortage of volunteers to man the firing squad.
