"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Frist Leak Probe Backfires

Oops:

This morning, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) and House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert (R-IL) wrote a letter to intelligence committee chairmen about the recent leak of information to the Washington Post about secret CIA detention centers in Europe.

In the letter, Frist and Hastert claimed the leaks "could have long-term and far-reaching damaging and dangerous consequences" for the security of the United States, and warned of a "dangerous trend" of leaking "that, if not addressed swiftly and firmly, likely will worsen."

But today, in an off-camera meeting with reporters, Sen. Trent Lott (R-MS) revealed that the leak likely came from a Senator or Senate staffer who attended a GOP-only meeting with Vice President Dick Cheney last week, where the detention centers were discussed.
