Kerry Doesn't Get It

From SFGate:

Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., echoed Harman, saying, "A CIA agent has an obligation to uphold the law, and clearly leaking is against the law. And nobody should leak." But he added: "If you're leaking to tell the truth, Americans are going to look at that, at least mitigate or think about what are the consequences that you ... put on that person."

Hey skipper John, what about Jonathan Pollard? Aldrich Ames? Robert Hanssen?
Didn't those guys tell the truth? What you mean to say is that Mary McCarthy
gave out classified information that was true, but that you approve of that
information being given out. Say what you mean.

And about Mary McCarthy being a democrat supporter -- I don't see where that
has much to do with it. It's interesting that she never leaked while working
for Bill Clinton (who started the practice of "rendition") but really, does it
matter if she exposed classified information merely for political advantage? Would
it have been any different if she had done it for money? Bottom line is that she
has no honor, she took a secrecy oath that she didn't mean to keep, and she did
what she wanted because she wanted it -- without regard for our allies or for what
it would do fo the security of this country. Aldrich Hazen Ames may have had a
different motivation, but really, shave him, and give her a haircut, and they could
be twins.

Incredible. Anybody in the Democratic party willing to say "treason"? Apparently not.
