Arlen “Magic Bullet” Specter presses forward with Shield Law September 20, 2006

Posted by daveintexas in Politics, terrorist hemorrhoids.

Rob over at Sayanythingblog writes about Deputy Attorney General Paul McNulty’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee (an organization I grow to loathe more each day).  He makes all the right points, National Security requires secrecy, elected officials are charged with deciding what needs to be kept secret and what should not.  Sometimes they suck at it and sometimes we hold them accountable.

Putting it in the hands of non-elected reporters?  And hide them behind a shield of secrecy and protection?  Publish anything they want with no consequences?

Can someone please explain to me why Specter thinks this is a good idea?  This is the kind of crap the KGB did for crying out loud, why in the hell do I want to give the NYT this kind of unchecked power?

I swear, they are really our enemies.
