Ballsy Bush Administration Going after Domestic Spying Whistleblowers

"The Justice Department has opened an investigation into the leak of classified information about President Bush's secret domestic spying program, Justice officials said Friday. The officials, who requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the probe, said the inquiry will focus on disclosures to the New York Times about warrantless surveillance conducted by the National Security Agency since the September 11 terrorist attacks..."

If Bush wants to find some treasonous leakers, he needs to get to the bottom of the Valerie Plame leak and see that the perpetrators (in addition to Scooter Libby) are brought to justice.

Whistle blowers are not leakers- they were merely drawing attention to illegal spying activities in the Bush Whitehouse.
If Bush didn't want his illegal activities brought to light, he shouldn't have done them.
His righteous indignation is not righteous, nor does he have the dignity over which to get indignant. He got caught. Suck it up, dude.

I was appalled when I saw this story tonight when I got home from work. That sumbitch was breaking a boatload of laws and yet wants to know who is informing the public of his illegal bullshit..

Whatever happened to prosicuting the leaker of Valerie Plames status at the CIA? Has that slipped his feeble mind?

He needs to quit lying to us and take responsibility for his illegal actions. The "I" word is still out there and growing stronger everyday...he is getting desperate.

I've tried the righteous indignation routine before after I was caught doing something reprehensible and it's a chickenshit route to take.
Seeking out the leaker and trying to punish them under the guise of "national security" is absurd.
Wait till a slew of defendants in alleged terrorism plots use the illegal wiretaps defense to get their cases thrown out of court.
It almost seems like Bush is in collusion with them.

I think one of those terrorists is already making use of the illegal wiretapping thing..
