Senator Roberts Getting Tough


Pasted here in it’s entirety:

The following letter from the Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence to the DNI was sent today and obtained by PJM’s editors:

June 27, 2006

The Honorable John D. Negroponte
Director of National Intelligence
Washington, D.C. 20511
Dear Mr. Director:

Unauthorized disclosures of classified information continue to threaten our national security – exposing our sensitive intelligence sources and methods to our enemies.

Numerous, recent unauthorized disclosures of sensitive intelligence programs have directly threatened important efforts in the war against terrorism.

Whether the President’s Terrorist Surveillance Program or the Department of Treasury’s effort to track terrorist financing, we have been unable to persuade the media to act responsibly and protect the means by which we protect this nation.

To gain a better understanding of the damage caused by unauthorized disclosures of this type, I ask that you perform an assessment of the damage caused by the unauthorized disclosure of some of our most sensitive intelligence programs. While your assessment may range beyond the President’s Terrorist Surveillance Program and Treasury’s Terrorist Finance Tracking Program, I am particularly interested in the damage attributable to these two unauthorized disclosures.


Pat Roberts

  1. Too little too late. Why aren’t we jailing the NYT’s journalists for not disclosing their leakers like with did with Valarie Plame? Ah, because the leakers are LIBERALS with an agenda. We need to get an attorney general who has balls. Gonzales has no gonads as has been proven before. He is a figure head, who must be gotten rid of. And our legislature is just as gutless for not calling for an investigation of this crime.
