Where is Jack Bauer when you need him?
The Morning Bell, “Just Another WikiLeak On An Already Sinking Ship”:
The President should [...] make it a publicly top priority to hunt down any American connected with these leaks and prosecute them. This is not the first WikiLeak. This is, in fact, the third time that WikiLeaks has undermined our nation’s national security, and the Obama Department of Justice has been silent each time. Nobody gets more cooperation than a winner. The Obama Administration can begin to right its foreign policy ship by stopping and successfully prosecuting the WikiLeakers.
With all due respect, this administration’s Justice Department can’t successfully prosecute actual terrorists. Think of how they’ll handle a leaker who, under other circumstances — say, like, when the target of exposure is a Republican administration — they’d be secretly cheering on.
I don’t know precisely when it was when we stopped treating treason as treason, but it’s about time we reconsidered our softening on that stance. Perhaps if the threat of real consequences — other than, say, international celebrity, and perpetual darling/hero status on the left — obtained to such actions, we’d see fewer instances of the kind of behavior that has no other real function than to destabilize the security of sovereign nations, and put the lives of soldiers, diplomats, and covert operatives at risk.
So yes. Read between the lines. Because I am indeed saying it.
