NSA - Keeping on the point

Take a look at Clarice Feldman's new article in American Thinker, Laughable claims about the NSA “Scandal”. Important as the disinformation machine of the MSM has been in overdrive since the New York Times began printing the leaked information on December 16th, 2005.

However, as a Washington DC based attorney she also brings up this important point I've been harping on for serveral posts to wit: That leaking classified information to the MSM is illegal:

In her article Clarice notes:

"5 U.S.C. 1213 sets up the procedures by which federal whistleblowers are to proceed.

Complaints are to be filed with the Office of Special Counsel. If they are found to be of merit and they involve “foreign intelligence or counterintelligence information” and disclosure of information described in the complaint is “prohibited by law or by Executive order, the Special Counsel shall transmit such information to the National Security Advisor, the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence of the House of Representatives, and the Select Committee on Intelligence of the Senate."


The point that keeps getting missed - and as of this morning with James Risen doing rounds on the talk shows to promote his leaked material, is that there are specific laws that relate to devulging classified information and that they were broken here.

Whistleblowers are NOT protected if they "Blow the whistle" out of bounds to the Media. There is a chain of command and procedures so that the integrity of the classified information is kept in tack.

Mr. Risen, or any other reporter isn't on anyone's chain of command. Seeing him on the Today Show today shows just how arrogant and quite frankly stupid the MSM has become. Does Risen realize he may well (and sources tell me it could happen, and in fact the DOJ is looking into the possibilty) be charged with devulging classified information? Folks, I've told you before, the President of the United States has ordered "Heads on a Platter". You can bet it's going to happen.

UPDATE: Could it be that dealing with national security the left is only operating with half a brain?

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
