A Little Background

Over at The American Spectator, The Prowler has some juicy insights into NY Times reporter Eric Lichtblau. Not surprisingly, he's had problems with "even-handedness" in the past.

Republican House Intelligence Committee chairman Peter Hoekstra explained the circumstances which led to him writing a letter to President Bush which said that not informing Congress about "special projects" may be illegal and warned him that he may lose support from some party members on national security matters

It's always entertaining to read Carol's post, then click to the article she's describing. In this case, the "juicy insights" amound to a Bush administration flunky whining that the secrecy-obsessed White House doesn't like reporters who do their job instead of just taking the press releases from Tony Snow's hand.

I hadn't thought of this angle, namely one can not only not try "leakers" due to the necessity of revealing secrets, one can not even reveal the damage caused by revealed secrets without, once again, revealing secrets.

Why is something, anything, classified? Well, I have to assume the answer is to prevent the information from getting into enemy hands.

Apparently my assumption is not shared with others?

Discredit, discredit, discredit. Aren't you exhausted, Carol? Very few care if the Times reporter is a card-carrying member of the ACLU or the NRA. Give yourself a break.

Keep pounding away, Carol. The NYT has had a free reign for far too long.

Besides, it's fun to watch the left squirm as one of their strongholds takes well-desrved hits.
