Sources tell Drudge that early this afternoon House Speaker Hastert and Senate Majority Leader Frist will announce a bicameral investigation into the leak of classified information to the WASHINGTON POST regarding the “black sites” where high value al Qaeda terrorists are being held and interrogated.There's more here, including a link to the offending stuff which appeared yesterday. After spending what must be about 2 years gunning for Bush operatives over the alleged "leak" of the Plame-Wilson connection, we wonder if the Dems will be so eager to out the obviously inside sources of the Post's Dana Priest who, by outting the existence of a "black" secret prison system ("black stuff in DC-speak is super-super-super-super secret) for interrogating top Islamofascists. Such leakage can only be intended to damage America's war efforts and credibility abroad, much like the ACLU's incessant demands for more pix from Abu Ghraib--a demand so transparently unnecessary that it's only intention can be to damage American reputations--and lives--across the globe by giving the Al Qaeda crew another excuse to indulge in infidel throat-slitting.
Stuff like this article is part of a continuing, massive fusillade from the left meant to derail the entire second Bush administration. It will be interesting to see if the heretofore timid Republican leadership will learn a lesson from the Democratic and Clintonista playbooks and start playing hardball with the MSM and their seditionist pals buried deeply and safely inside Federal institutions--the unelected deletes who labor daily to overturn elections they can't yet control.
Meanwhile, let's all watch and see how avidly the MSM latches onto this leak--arguably massively more damaging than the alleged outing of Plame and her anti-US husband that has them all so obsessed.
