Rockefeller did you "teller" - XVI - The long arm of the law

Yesterday's passage of a Intelligence Spending bill, by the house spells the end of the "loose lip" rogue ops who exist only to blab secrets to the media and undermine our country - at least if they want to keep their pension checks.

"The bill would require Negroponte to study administrative punishments for government employees who leaked classified information, including revocation of their pensions.

Renzi offered a resolution that condemns media organizations that profit from disclosures and calls on the president to use his constitutional powers to act against leakers of classified information. The resolution, the kind Congress uses to express an opinion on an issue, made no substantive or practical changes to current law. It passed 366-56.

Renzi said the resolution sends a message that former government employees or those soon to retire would be prosecuted for leaks. He said media organizations should help "safeguard the nation's secrets" during the terror war.

"It is never in our nation's best interest to disclose our most sensitive intelligence sources and methods to our enemies," Renzi said in a statement.

The resolution probably won't make much difference in how reporters handle sensitive information, though.

"I think it is obnoxious, but I don't think it will have much of an impact," said Lucy Dalglish, executive director of the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press."

But in addition the bill would allow the agency to persue those ops even if they retired, with prosecution and revocation of pensions and benefits. Which is why the agency issued a warning to those ex ops who just can't resist talking to the WAPO, Times, and other rags.

Kit gloves are off - like Rambo, "We're coming after you!"

Yep, turning out to be a real HOT summer some people - real hot!

UPDATE: Reader Carol note that 56 Democrats voted against this bill. Yeah, "Party of Treason" ...who would have thunk it?

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?


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

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 …
