Quote of the Day – Here’s Powerline explaining the difference between the pernicious Valerie Plame leak and the innocuous leak about a secret NSA program collecting information on terrorists: “I suspect it'll be a long wait [for indignation from the “Plame Platoon”] because the rule of thumb seems to be that although it's treasonous for pro-Bush partisans to spill secrets that might embarrass an administration critic, it's a public service for anti-Bush partisans to spill secrets that might embarrass the administration. The determination of which secrets are OK to reveal is, of course, to be made not by officials charged with protecting our nation but by journalists charged with selling newspapers.”

Correction - Whoops, that was Max Boot writing in the Los Angeles Times. Although I found it on Powerline, here's the original article.
