Nothing wrong with any of Mr. Lord’s proposed suspension-of-privileges sanctions against the Times, or against any other media entity which knowingly reveals classified national security information. It seems to me this is the least that should be done, because it’s simple common sense not to cooperate with one’s avowed enemies in one’s (our) own destruction.
But I’d still like to see some prosecutions. I’ve read several times the relevant sections of the applicable statutes, and it seems unambiguous that the Times violated those laws. So what’s the problem? Are laws to be enforced, or not? And if not, why bother keeping them on the books?p>And it’s no excuse to suggest that the administration has plenty else on its plate right now, not when it has enormous power to get whatever resources it needs to do whatever truly needs to be done — especially the prosecution of sabotage, betrayal, treason, whatever word legally fits the crime. If the AG needs to hire some more lawyers in order to bring the case(s), fine, do it; what with all the tons of money being spent by Washington on matters infinitely less important, who’s going to squawk if pinch-boy gets pinched, if Keller lands in the clink? br> — Chuck Vail

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?
