The New York Times - 'Keeper Of All Secrets' (NOT)Topics: Follies of the Mainstream Media
Curt at Flopping Aces says, "Here we go again, the NYT's believes itself to be the keeper of all secrets. They get to decide what is in the countries best interest; not our ELECTED leaders, but guys who get hired to write newpaper articles.
Andrew C. McCarthy at the NRO agrees, and writes about, "The Media's War Against The War":
Yet again, it sided with al Qaeda.Continue reading, "The Media's War Against The War."
Once again, members of the American intelligence community had a simple choice: remain faithful to their oath -- the solemn promise the nation requires before entrusting them with the secrets on which our safety depends -- or violate that oath and place themselves and their subjective notions of propriety above the law.
Once again, honor was cast aside.
For the second time in seven months, the Times has exposed classified information about a program aimed at protecting the American people against a repeat of the September 11 attacks. On this occasion, it has company in the effort: The Los Angeles Times runs a similar, sensational story. Together, the newspapers disclose the fact that the United States has covertly developed a capability to monitor the nerve center of the international financial network in order to track the movement of funds between terrorists and their facilitators.
To hell with what liberals have to say about it, our nation's securtity and the protection of millions of American's lives ranks far higher than so-called personal privacy issues. If you're not a terrorist and you're not plotting to kill Americans, and you're not doing anything illega, what in the hell is your problem, people?
Put government employees that expose government secrets in prison, with the journalist and editor responsible for making the secrets known to the public (and subsequently known to the terrorists that are plotting to kill the public) in the prison cell right next to the government employee, for life!!!
