The chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee urged the Bush administration on Sunday to seek criminal charges against newspapers that reported on a secret financial-monitoring program used to trace terrorists.
Rep. Peter King cited The New York Times in particular for publishing a story last week that the Treasury Department was working with the CIA to examine messages within a massive international database of money-transfer records.
I really hope that Attorney General Alberto Gonzales does something about the newspapers that feel they can print about classified programs anytime they feel like it. The freedom of the press shouldn't take precedence over national security.
The NY Times and the LA Times have made it quite clear they hate President Bush, the American people and America. I don't think this is about money, because they'd have to know that they would be losing more readers upset about what they've done. No, they are hoping to destroy anything that would help us win the war on terror. It just boggles my mind. We actually have newspapers that are determine to make sure the United States fails.
