The Treason Times, Again

From Big Journalism (H/T: PaladinPhil):

…The New York Times is preparing to go public with a list of names of Americans covertly working in Afghanistan providing force protection for our troops, as well as the rest of our Coalition Forces. If the Times actually sees this through, the red ink they are drowning in will be nothing compared to the blood their entire organization will be covered with. Make no mistake, the Times is about to cause casualty rates in Afghanistan to skyrocket. Each and every American should be outraged. As chronicled here, here, here, and here the Central Intelligence Agency via The New York Times has been waging a nasty proxy war against the Department of Defense over its use of former military and intelligence personnel to do what the CIA is both incapable and unwilling to do: gather the much needed intelligence that keeps our troops safe. … thanks to the beating the folks on the 7th floor at Langley and The New York Times have taken in the blogosphere, they are about to go for broke and to do so in a fashion so grotesque that every American should be moved to action. … They are not only putting at risk the lives of the brave men and women working day and night to keep our troops safe (who, along with their families, will surely be targeted for retribution by al Qaeda and the Taliban), but they are also calling down a host of legal woes via the Intelligence Identities Protection Act (made famous in the Valerie Plame affair under the George W. Bush Administration) as the intelligence gathered and reported on by the Defense Department operatives in question is most definitely classified. … What the Central Intelligence Agency and The New York Times has cooked up is a recipe for unmitigated disaster and we used to have a word for it in our lexicon. We called it treason

Isn’t it too bad that the US stopped prosecuting and executing people for treason so many decades ago, allowing it to not only prosper but become fashionable on the left? I said, in reference to another case a few years back, that it would just take one successful prosecution to make any number of other traitors to think twice. The Left, after all, loves to brag about their own “courage” in protesting and standing up to “injustice” and speaking “truth” to “power”; but the fact is that they are bullies who only protest when it’s safe and go after people who don’t fight back. That’s why they attack Mormons for being against gay marriage but never hold protests in front of mosques that call for homosexuals to be stoned to death. Their anti-war protests were only directed against America, and PETA is famous for throwing blood on old ladies in fur coats but never bikers in leather. Hollywood liberals constant applaud each other’s “bravery” for advocating opinions which are universally accepted by everyone around them. Well, The New York Times knows, after everything they got away with under George W. Bush, and considering who sits in the White House now, that they are almost certain to get away with this as well if they pull it off. I really hope they’re wrong.
