What None Dare Call It?

Daniel Henninger has it exactly right, discussing the CIA leaks that are undermining the war on terror:

It certainly doesn't qualify as simple dissent, which seems to be the view in elite press circles. Using a privileged, confidential position inside an intelligence agency to blow up a U.S. government's war policy isn't "dissent." It's something else.

Again: Those who disagree with the policies of the current Administration aren't being forced to work in the CIA or anywhere else in the government. But as long as they're there, they're required to carry out the policy set for them by the duly elected President of the United States.

I believe the word is "treason". At the least it's sedition, but treason is more accurate.
