The Belmont Club’s Summary

Tuesday, December 20, 2005  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

The Belmont Club has a superb summary of the NSA debate, and underscores this crucial understanding:

But whatever the legalities of the wiretapping, the fate of this particular operation was effectively decided — not by the New York Times, it’s fair to say — but by whoever took it upon himself to leak it to them. The judgment on the wiretap’s operational security had been handed down, as effectively as a unanimous decision from the Supreme Court. If your life had to depend on this operation’s secrecy, then kiss your a… goodbye.
