Thank You, ABC -- NOT!

I didn't spend much time on the Internet yesterday, as I took the day off and spent much of it cleaning the house (ugh) and at play rehearsal in the evening. So as I check out my favorite sites today I see that once again, thanks to our media, another government intelligence victory has gone sour.

ABC News first told the world about Osama bin Laden's video message just before the sixth remembrance of 9/11 last month, and thanks to that journalistic coup, "tipped off Qaeda's internal security division that the organization's Internet communications system, known among American intelligence analysts as Obelisk, was compromised."

The system was shut down, revamped, and re-opened...but the intelligence community is no longer privy to its secrets.

Damn these idiots! We are FIGHTING A WAR against an enemy that will stop at nothing to destroy us and our way of life. Don't they get it? Is tweaking the nose of a president they don't like more important than the safety and security of our nation? Is getting the scoop more important? Holy cow, these people are unbelievable. Screw the "right" of the people to know. I'd rather NOT know if it means those who are putting their lives on the line for us can do their jobs, which is to save our bacon.

And journalists wonder why fewer and fewer people trust them? It's no wonder at all.

John Hawkins has more. Part of the problem seems to be Bush's unwillingness to punish leakers:

But, the mainstream media couldn't have gotten anywhere without the real villain in this story: the person or persons who leaked it to the press.

Yet another problem with our government: entrenched lifers in government service who have their own agendas...and if that happens to clash with national security, too bad for the rest of us.
