Justice Department to investigate NSA leaks

The Justice Department has officially opened an investigation into leaks to the media about the classified domestic National Security Agency surveillance program. - Inquiry into leak of NSA spying program launched - Dec 30, 2005

This could end up being serious stuff if the Bush Justice Department keeps the heat on and actually prosecutes the leakers. Certainly, this was much more important and much more damaging to US interests than the so-called `outing' of CIA functionary Valerie Plame.

I doubt that the NYT can be prosecuted for their part in this, but they should be. Or at least ostracized by all decent Americans.
