    You are correct publishing the identity of Plame's identity was not a crime as Novak was protected by the 1st Amendment as is the publisher of the WikiLeaks.

    It was never Patrick Fitzgerald's job to find who was the first leak Plame's identity nor was it his job to prosecute anyone. His job was to find who and why, he made this clear when Libby was indicted.

    On this you would be incorrect. Sorry

    If this is true, then he knew that early on and could have closed the investigation within weeks as the actual person that leaked her name to Novak wasn't Libby, but rather Armatage. Fitz knew that and continued until all he could do was hang someone for a process crime....pathetic.

    Fitzgerald knew about Armitage and was satisfied with his alibi, but he wanted to know what the motivation was of other people who talking to the press which included Libby and Rove.

    They are stealing and putting lives at risk. They are outlaws and should be arrested.

    Re: Congressman wants WikiLeaks listed as terrorist group

    I can't help but think that that if this Wikileaks were just a tad bit more careful (perhaps censoring identities and info that could lead to identifying people) with the info they release, there would be less of a reason to be upset here...

    That’s my main sticking point here – the possibility that people may get killed and/or damaged (or have their lives ripped apart, while not deserving it) by one of these leaks…

    Of nearly equal importance, IMO, is the potential damage these leaks could do to the US and (in the more recent case) many other countries.

    Not that I’m particularly worried about damage to political figures/people in power (since I cynically think them mostly corrupt or something similar), but rather that the damage too said persons is highly likely to splash onto people who do not deserve it.

    I’m WAG’ing that these Wikileak people are simply too lazy to go through all the documents and redact the info I mentioned above – or they don’t want too…

    Either way, I dislike it.

    Terrorism is the word that anyone can now utilize when they find a group that they don't like. Who cares if it doesn't fit the actual definition?
