    That George W. Bush's foreign policy injured the U.S. by harming the country's international reputation, ultimately making the country less secure.  Arguably, this leak could be interpreted as causing the same sort of harm and that only the top level of government can decide whether an increased risk of other countries seeking reprisal in a form that may injure the United States is an acceptable cost of revealing those details.

      Isn't that how dictatorships work.

      New laws need to be written about the consequences of US citizens revealing government secrets about programs that break US Constitutional laws.

      Let's see, which Senators would be comfortable sponsoring these sorts of laws?

      If the reasons of the Boston Bombing are to be believed, the bombers retaliated against both Clinton and Bush's foreign policies, I think.

      It's difficult to be happy knowing so many suffer. We must unite.
