“This is a highly classified program that is crucial to our national security. Its purpose is to detect and prevent terrorist attacks against the United States, our friends and allies. Yesterday the existence of this secret program was revealed in media reports, after being improperly provided to news organizations. As a result, our enemies have learned information they should not have, and the unauthorized disclosure of this effort damages our national security and puts our citizens at risk. Revealing classified information is illegal, alerts our enemies, and endangers our country.”

Says the President in his radio address, and the complete transcript can be found in more places than Ted Kennedy has stashes of Chivas.

A special prosecutor was necessary to determined who released the identity of Double-O-Dufus, the under-the-covers cocktail party agent known to everyone in D.C. with a fax number, email address, or connections to a travel agency, but the Times feels it's okay to alert our enemies that we've been listening to them hatch their death-to-America schemes. This is why it's difficult to take politics seriously or to even feign surprise or anger at what the liberals, and yes, Roger, today's liberals are quite different than those of yesteryear and may indeed be called enemies of the state, are doing to get elected so that they might be the one's who'd protect the criminals at the expense of the law abiding.
