Willing to Reserve Judgement of Times for Leak Publication
I am, however, willing to reserve judgement of the Times for publication of the NSA wiretapping program. I would consider the possibility that the administration and the military were complicit in the publication; perhaps the program had outlived its usefulness and al Queda reaction is of more value. Perhaps the appearance of weakness and the superficial blackeye on the Administration are useful.
Still, it's an interesting question that is raised. How to balance the executive branch's desire to protect us from attack against an over-reaching and overly instrusive government? This oughtta be up for debate in congress, however, they're a little too busy these days stuffing money in their pockets and holding kangaroo hearings. You know, important stuff.
I also agree with Jon that the NSA has been monitoring communications for many, many years; at least on the international scene. After 9/11 I suspect they were directed to do whatever was necessary to protect us, we'll deal with the legalities later. Well, I guess now is later.
