    Why do progressives support Rosen and why do you defend Rosen's leaker in the same way you'd defend a real whistleblower?
    For the same reason I strenuously defend the right of neo-Nazis, the KKK and the like to publicly demonstrate (even though their views are disgusting to me and their public protests are often deeply hurtful to some.)  Because if we want to have a truly free and open society we have to err on the side of freedom in every instance.
