Information reported on several blogs indicates Ms. McCarthy was a Democratic insider well connected with Clinton-era political operatives, high-level appointees (of which she was one), and outspoken retired partisan generals. McCarthy and apparently her husband recently made significant donations to Democratic causes. McCarthy told her story and committed her treasonous crime with reporter/accomplice Dana Priest. Priest works at a paper highly critical of the Bush administration. Priest’s husband operates a company that employs former ambassador Joe Wilson as a speaker. Priest received a Pulitzer for reporting classified information that embarrassed the administration and compromised U.S. interests abroad. If there was any lingering doubt about the bias of Washington MSM, those doubts can be safely put away. If there was any lingering doubt about the infection of many main stream democratic politicians and bureaucrats with the disease identified by Charles Krauthammer as “Bush Derangement Syndrome,” those doubts can be safely put away.p>All that remains now is aggressive prosecution of Ms. McCarthy and hopefully Ms. Priest. br> — Doug Santo br> Pasadena, California /p>
Mr. Babbin’s latest column is another one of his home runs in my humble opinion. My only worry is that George Bush will NOT make his administration enforce the legal sanctions available. I know that an argument will be made that to take the latest leak case to trial risks state secrets being made public. It seems to me that they are being made public now anyway. I believe that Bush’s lack of ordering full prosecution gives the public the (correct?) impression that he is not serious about going after his opponents, instead preferring to attack his base. Remember when he ordered the Justice Department to NOT go after the Clinton staffers that trashed the White House as they left? Did we see Sandy Berger hauled before a judge and then incarcerated for theft of classified government documents? How about almost five-plus years of refusal to enforce our borders against the illegal alien invasion.
I am also not sanguine as regards doing anything effective about the MSM and their sell out of the country to wage an insurgency against Bush. I am personally convinced that most within the press are thoroughly indoctrinated into the camp of the one-worlders that abhor the very notion of sovereign nation states. Also, we must remember that journalists today are not in the business to report the news and happenings of the day. They are in the business to “make a difference.” They are determined to make, or at least affect, the news. Why else would such a major part of each news report be consumed with reporting on public opinion polls? Just tell me what happened and who did it, I can handle the rest on my own. And where are we to find courts and juries that are willing to convict and sentence working members of the press in such instances like the one Jed reports on in this column?p>REMEMBER THE ALAMO — BUSH WON’T br> — Ken Shreve /p>
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
