Time to crack down hard on the CIA?

Is it time for a major crackdown on the CIA leakers? Dafydd thinks so:


... My suggestion is that the Bush administration must realize that this is a terribly dangerous situation: at a time of national danger, when we are at war, the CIA has become a rogue agency, uncontrolled by any branch of the federal government. It conducts its own foreign policy; it dictates military policy (through control of the intelligence the Department of Defense needs); it has seized control of a significant portion of the powers of the elected Executive.

It's time to fight back... and best and quickest way to do so would be for President Bush to direct Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez to immediately begin Justice Department investigations of this rash of recent leaks from the CIA, including ...

Reporters should be subpoenaed; if they refuse to testify, put them in jail for contempt until they do. Use the full powers of the Patriot Act to seize records and find out who is doing the leaking. And then drop the hammer on them: prosecute them for misuse of classified information or even worse criminal violations. At the very least, get enough evidence to strip them of their security clearances... make it plain that leaking to the press to damage the administration is a career-terminating offense and might even lead to prison time.


Dafydd, I couldn't agree with you more. Criminals should be treated like criminals, period, and traitors should be treated like traitors. At the CIA, and in the MSM, we're dealing with both. Jail's too good for the SOBs but I guess that's the best we can hope for. GWB has shown some major signs recently of finally having grown a pair and being ready to start fighting back; let's hope that extends to following your advice.

Hey Bill, There has been something pretty smelly about the CIA in the last few years. I don't want to start any conspiracy theories (not that they aren't already out there), but it sure seems like the CIA would like to kabosh the Bush administration. (along with the left and the MSM)
