  •  The Spin to Come (0+ / 0-)

    I can already hear the Cons spinning this. "It's the Obama administration's fault. If they had been honest from the start, we wouldn't have had to ask for the information and therefore would never have had the opportunity to commit this treasonous breach of national security." Rush and Beck will scream this talking point on air while our side silently rolls its eyes from the high ground, conservatives who need only the smallest reason to vote based on their greed and fear of the other are given their moral justification, and the only ones who suffer are the outed people and the brave Americans who worked so hard to put the operation in place. Of course, the admin was honest from the start, they just shared info as it became safe to do so, and the media's and Issa's rabid pursuit of a non-existent cover-up was the only actual controversy.
    Sigh ...

    •  Yep, the wife beater's favorite defense. Which is (0+ / 0-)

      pretty much all we should say about it, except maybe giving other outrageous examples to illustrate that it is.  E.g., "I see! If Churchhill had just surrendered to Hitler he wouldn't have hd to kill all those people!  Its all so clear now!  How do you not feel the Hellfire buring up your legs even as we talk?"

    •  It's not the ASKING (0+ / 0-)

      Asking for the info is fine. I have no problem with that.

      It's the RELEASING of the info. That was wrong. Treasonous, even.

      There's a huge difference between an investigation and exposing classified info. The first is fine, even necessary. The second is inexcusable.
