Leak double-standards

Within days of the leak of former CIA agent Valerie Plame's identity, Sen. Chuck Schumer was demanding a full-scale investigation into the incident, and others soon followed suit. So where are Sen. Schumer and his fellow Democrats in demanding a similar investigation and prosecution of a far more egregious leak of classified material involving the National Security Agency? Instead of demanding to know who leaked information that could jeopardize both sources and methods for intelligence gathering that will protect American lives, Democrats -- and some Republicans -- are busy accusing the president of wrongdoing. Response to the two leaks reveals a stark double standard.

Where are the treason prosecutions?

I can't think of a clearer example of "giving aid and comfort" to the enemy than exposing America's civilian and military defenses to terrorist scrutiny and exploitation. What is the difference between the New York Times latest "expose" on the National Security Agency's terrorist monitoring, and a soldier who alerts the enemy so that his fellow soldiers can be ambushed, captured or killed?

The New York Times seems to think that it is a "crime against humanity" when terrorist sympathizers in America have telephone calls to their terrorist buddies back home in the Mideast monitored. "Oh, that evil President Bush, trying to make it more difficult for Satan's little minions to do their work!"

Yes, it's a real outrage.
