Prosecuting Leakers

| 1 Comment
Greg Miller reports in the WaPo, "A former CIA officer involved in spying efforts against Iran was arrested Thursday on charges of leaking classified information to a reporter, continuing the Obama administration's unprecedented crackdown on the flow of government secrets to the media."

Unprecedented?  Remember the "plumbers"?

"Steven Aftergood, an expert on government classification issues at the Federation of American Scientists, said the five leaks cases brought so far during the Obama administration exceed the total for all previous administrations."

Really?  Less than five unauthorized disclosure of secrets prosecutions from George Washington to George W. Bush?  That's pretty hard to believe.
