  •  Just a little information gathering... (2+ / 0-)

    That's all.  What do we need to know about it anyway?  They only want to stop the leaks.  This information gathering exercise is just a means to that end.  

    Once they find out who leaked, they can be dealt with in such a way that completley discourages others from leaking information about US operations in the ME theater and other regions abroad.  

    We have to maintain a high level of secrecy in our communications and operations inside and outside of these borders.  The federal government should be completely trusted to make the decisions that keep us safe from the bloodthirsty terrorists.  So if that means spying on our own citizens, dealing with saboteurs or any other measures insuring the liberty and safety of our citizens, we should let the federal government make those calls in total secrecy for our own security.  

    We have to make examples out of these leakers and if that means dealing with them in the harshest ways possible, so be it.  As long as it's deemed, "legal".
