That is exactly what these leakers and their fellow felon journalists are:

Liberals are jumping up and down about USA Today's publication of another leak relating to the National Security Agency. It's considered a news flash that the NSA is collecting data on phone calls, with the cooperation of almost all of the major telecom companies, to look for suspicious patterns. This is a "data mining" project that does not involve listening in on conversations, but merely identifying phone numbers involved in possible terrorist communications.

They even told them what carriers do and don't cooperate. If there is another attack and people get killed, I wonder if these folks can be charged with aiding and abetting mass murder in the first degree?

You gotta love it! What do folks think the telcos do to decide what plans to put together and who to target them at and how to price them? They munge (oooh, I mean data mine) a few bajillion Call Detail Records. OK for developing Friends and Family plans, I guess, but not for Jihadis and Jerks.

The Democratic Party’s “mainstream” leadership and its leftist cohorts do not believe we are engaged in a life and death struggle against Islamic nihilism. Remember that when you vote in November. This is the central issue of our era. Nothing else comes close. We must do everything possible to keep them out of power. Our very lives depend on it.

Reading Patton now, I'm struck by the routine and totally accepted practice of wartime censorship.

Since these clowns won't self-censor, maybe the prospect of a few scribblers hanging off a yardarm is necessary.

Oh, I don't know. I think tar and feathers and a long rail should do the trick. 'Course the modern approach would be to just sue the b*st*rds. I really do wonder if these folks have a legal exposure to civil suits if an attack takes place. I can see it now, the liberal papers all promoting tort reform with either a cap on awards or simply a free pass for certain foreign nationals, aka journalists.

There has to be some way to get some value out of 18USC, Title 18, Part I, Chapter 115, TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES.

I keep having to repeat the same sentence, over and over,"Don't people know what the NSA does?" They monitor electronic and wire communications. That is their primary reason for exsisting. Do they pay rapt attention to every single person's phone calls and emails? Hell no! The sheer volume of intercepted signal makes that a near immposibility. If someone connected to any operating terrorist organization is calling you on a regular basis I would like to know what y'all are talking about. And also what you are doing in between calls. Call me crazy, I just think this is basic commonsense in the war against Wahabist deathwhorshippers and anarchist/socialist nutjobs.
