Did Harry Reid violate Senate Rules?

Ed at Captain's Quarters has an interesting post about Harry Reid's recent antics.

In an impromptu remark made during a prepared speech on the floor, he flatly stated that Henry Saad represented a security risk to the United States according to Saad's confidential FBI files...

None of the Senators have access to the file except those on the Senate Judiciary Committee or Saad's homestate senators (both Democrats) -- which excludes Harry Reid! Reid should never have been given access to that information, and if he has accessed the file, he would be guilty of a breach of Senate rules. Furthermore, by publicly characterizing the data in Saad's file, he has breached its confidentiality.

The hypocrisy of breaching US security so you can accuse someone else of breaching US security aside...I have to wonder if the MSM will, even for a little bit, think about why this isn't the same thing as what they falsely accused the Bush Administration of doing to Valerie Plame.
