    the article has a timeline of the alleged events. it's dismaying that much of this has been suppressed in the name of "state secrets".

    neocons can rot in hell.

    while this is teh suck, nytimes also sat on information under the specter of "state secrets". the wiretapping kerfuffle comes to mind, as well as secret prisons. don't think any neocons are on staff there, but i would expect they had enough influence to see that it was delayed until a more expedient time.

    at the risk of threadjack, i'd also like offered up where do the media's boundaries exist?

    I didn't read the whole article just what you posted.
    Sibel Edmonds worked for the FBI for a total of 5 months as a translator only. Yet she knows about who is going where and how they got their clearance, BU!!SH!T
    She's just pissed she got fired.
    Is this FBI, CIA, NSA, inept and continuing screwing up Yes
    But I don't believe her.

    So what they did was bad, but others did it too so that makes it ok?

    The purpose of the 4th estate is to report unbiased truth to the people. Sadly, this boundary has been violated for quite some time now.

    Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, eh?

    Why not? Why do you think she was gagged?

    my comment was to note that it's curious the media appears to be state-controlled at [ny]times.

    Clever wording. I would just omit the [ny] for clarity.
    Is it really so obvious that even a frother such as yourself suspects it?

    I will admit, when the regulations allowing greater media consolidation were being discussed way back when, I didn't see any harm. Why shouldn't a business be permitted to own as many TV and Radio stations and Newspapers as they want? This is America™ after all.

    :poster_oops: Now I understand why this is a bad idea.
