This was a guy shooting his mouth off to the press; he isn't tied to anyone who is tied to Bush, other than being a government employee.

There's so much he deserves to be blamed FOR, Evie.

Destroying our respect in the world, costing the country over a quarter trillion dollars and 2200 soldiers (KIA only), further destabilizing the Middle East, mishandling both North Korea and Iran and so increasing the likelihood of nuclear proliferation -- just for starters (Odd how folks get upset at being labeled part of an "Axis of Evil" when you invade the other member of that small club...) And then there's the fruits of his anti-oil conservation efforts, just now being seen. His Adminsitration is the most secrecy-conscious since Nixon's because there's so much he needs to keep secret lest the American people and the world be ven further enraged at him!

In reply to: CIA

Post Executive Editor Leonard Downie Jr. said on the newspaper's Web site, "We don't know the details of why (the CIA employee) was fired, so I can't comment on that. But as a general principle, obviously I am opposed to criminalizing the dissemination of government information to the press."

In other words, to hell with the law or National Security.

Arrest the CIA operative AND the journalist
by dirtyrich / April 22, 2006 3:06 AM PDT

I'd say that knowingly publishing confidential material in the press should count as treason. By doing so, you're making the material available to everyone, including enemies of the state that the information focuses on.
Try them both for treason I'd say.
Or we can just wait until some leak directly costs the lives of US servicemen and operatives abroad.

What'd he say? what'd he mean?

"If there's a leak out of my administration, I want to know who it is,"

First, it has to qualify as a "leak", and the President just says that he "wants to know". That's all, just wants to know.

"If the person has violated law, that person will be taken care of."

IF the person has violated the law, This implies there could be a trial, (or they could be just taken care of, laid off, fired, promoted, demoted, disappeared) it doesn't say the person that leaked would be charged.

'I want to know the truth,' president tells reporters

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
