Whatever you think. Sure doesn't matter to me.
The 5 words which I used in my first post pointed to the hypocrisy present in the prosecutions. I'm sorry that I did not elucidate clearly to prevent any possible misunderstanding. I'm really surprised that you were able to take any other implication from that. What exactly, did you think the implication was?
It is directly related. The Plame incident was a deliberate "leak" to expose a CIA operative who had been supposedly effective in her mission. We will never know how many of her operatives were killed because of the Bush administrations treasonous activity. Yes treasonous. Bush the first signed a law which made it treason to out an operative of the CIA.
I'm not saying that the NSA employee should not be prosecuted. He should be. This administration, instead of "looking forward", should be investigating the malfeasance of the previous administration and implement prosecutions for violations of the law when applicable.
Last I checked, NO ONE in the United States is above the law.
