I wonder what would have happened to a person who would have leaked sensitive military information to the foreign press back during the Second World War.
At best, they would have been charged with espionage and tried in front of a military tribunal and at worst they would have faced a firing squad.
Every newspaper in the country -including The New York Times- would have excoriated the traitor for endangering the lives of our military and putting the United States of America in jeopardy.

I will turn 74 years old in October, and my formative years were in the days of rampant racial prejudice, and in the Deep South where I lived they strictly enforced Jim Crow laws.
In my entire early youth I never went to school with a black kid and never sat in a theater or a restaurant with a black person.
The black race was relegated to the back of the bus, to segregated sections of restaurants and theaters, and for the most part got the old school buses and school buildings, and in many cases the used books.Share on Facebook
President Obama recently signed a new treaty with the Russians limiting the amount of nuclear weapons in both our arsenals.
Obama may be casting himself in the role of the great global peacemaker, but the truth of the matter is this is little more than an exercise in futility.
What makes Obama think that the Russians will honor any treaty they sign? Of course they’ll be glad to destroy some of the old obsolete cold war relics they’ve got lying around, but when it comes to making the world a safer place you have to remember that they’ll still have enough weaponry in their nuclear stockpile to destroy everybody on the planet many times over, and we will too.Share on Facebook
