Sometimes I wonder why we even both to have intelligence agencies ...

I mean why bother if people go around leaking almost everything to the press. But … in an interesting development that could … just could … lead to some examination of this loathsome behavior … according to the AP: House Intelligence Chairman Peter Hoekstra has suspended a Democratic staff member because of concerns he may have leaked a high-level intelligence assessment to The New York Times last month.

How impolite of Hoekstra not playing ball with the discrete charms of the liberal media bourgoisie. He wants people to abide by the law – imagine that. Well, we shall see what we shall see. The New York Times … you will be shocked to learn … has not commented. Why would they? They know best.
