    In any case, how is the leaker patriotic exactly?
    I'm surprised a bit.

    I'm not quite sure what Obama is doing is legal/constitutional, even if it is effective - that's why it's patriotic in leaking it.

    Is that not one of the most informative pieces of journalism done in the past decade? After reading that, one sees rather clearly what the War on Terror is, and how we are waging it.

    And since they're drones, we're not risking Americans, nor anything strategic. Nothing in that article could be used by Al Qaeda.

    IMO, the perfectly illustrates how party loyalty comes before policy in the US today.

    It's just not worth debate with people who are so dedicated to a "side", as nothing is concrete, all ideas and actions must be seen (and judged) through the prism of party.

    Do you remember Valerie Plame?

    Indeed.

    So you support a special prsecutor then, like the Plame case?

    That would be refreshingly nonpartisan of you.
