The American Spectator’s Jed Babbin was on John Batchelor’s radio show yesterday, and stated that the intelligence community believes West Virignia Senator Jay Rockefeller is the leaker who illegally supplied the New York Times with the details of the NSA program.
Given that the CIA’s Porter J. Goss stated emphatically that the leak had done very serious damage to the Uniterd States, if Rockefeller is a suspect, he should be hauled before a Grand Jury asap. When the crime was bribery (Abscam)no one protested that a sitting U.S. Senator ought not to be atarget.
If the crime is much more serious –and this is– purported good intentions should not shield the suspect.
Has any member of the press asked Rockefeller point blank if he’s the law breaker yet?
Jed Babbin sits in for me on Monday’s show. That’s the day the hearings into the NSA program begin, and Jed will no doubt continue this conversation then.
