Congressman Oxley’s Resolution

Email Email Print

Congressman Michael Oxley, Chair of the House Financial Services Committee, is said to be poised to introduce a resolution on the Times Two stories assisting the terrorists in eluding capture.

Let’s hope it is as tough as Sgt. Boggs’ letter.

Who will step up in the senate?


Some e-mailers, particulalry from the left, see a conspiracy of silence in the condemnation being directed at the Times Two, and not the Wall Street Journal. Patterico covered the key distinction days ago:

Some commenters and bloggers have suggested that the Wall Street Journal is equally culpable as the New York Times and Los Angeles Times for leaking classified information about a successful anti-terror program. Now that I have had a chance to read the full Wall Street Journal piece, I disagree.

Based on my reading of the relevant articles, the responsible parties here are only the New York Times and the L.A. Times. The Wall Street Journal simply printed a story using on-the-record interviews with named government officials who knew the East and West Coast Timeses were going to print the story anyway.

The key questions are: 1) which papers were conducting an investigation by speaking with anonymous officials about classified information? and 2) which papers were asked by the government not to print the stories? The answer to both questions, based upon reading the stories, is: the New York Times and the L.A. Times
