    Perhaps the government is going to get to the bottom of the leaks. Notice the last sentence:

    The problem is, how do you determine someone who just leaks information, from someone who is blowing the whistle on something that is flat out wrong? Hmm? The precedent that we set here and now may have extremely dangerous repurcutions for the future. Keep in mind, that the media is the only way the public found out about Watergate.

    Depends on the information, classification, promises inherent with clearances and appointments to office. One must remember that appointments and job holders are not elected and are not to make policy.

    But they should blow the whistle if they think something is wrong, and there lies the rub.

    'blowing the whistle' has a process, which does NOT include NY Times, et al.
