Jan. 12, 2006 — Federal agents have launched an investigation into a surge in the purchase of large quantities of disposable cell phones by individuals from the Middle East and Pakistan, ABC News has learned.
The phones — which do not require purchasers to sign a contract or have a credit card — have many legitimate uses, and are popular with people who have bad credit or for use as emergency phones tucked away in glove compartments or tackle boxes. But since they can be difficult or impossible to track, law enforcement officials say the phones are widely used by criminal gangs and terrorists."
For those who think the NY Times story was "freedom of the press" and "right to do", consider that all these slugs need is a chance.
Reporters like James Risen and leakers like Senator Rockefeller have not only damaged our national security - if for no other reason that the almighty buck (in Risen's case) and political bias (in Rockefeller's), and subsequently put us all in danger.
You can't mess with these animals. They're not stupid. I helped chase The Red Brigades/Black September groups across Europe in the early 80's and most times just when we thought we had them, someone would tip them off. Usually its was some socialist leftwing news rag who got a leak "from a friend".
The problem, one more day out of captivity was one more day they could attack. Make no mistake "Loose Lips Kill" - period.
Defensive measures and tactics aren't a matter of the public's right to know. There is no such right - especially when our national security is on line.
Rockefeller's accounting is coming, and so is Risen's (wait and see), and if what I hear is true there is a hammer coming to bear on all those who leak classified information that endangers our way of living and our life.
Begone every one of you.
I'm pissed, and I've had it. Stay away from me all liberals you'll get us all killed!
UPDATE: Better a tad twitchy..then dead in the head "nuff said". When is a leak not a leak, when a lefty leaks it.
heh..."We care about national security! We all for giving warm blankets and pacifiers to the 'freedom fighters'".
UPDATE II: More cluelessness. Typical. When liberals get caught, they get indignant (and quite stupid).
