Okay, so the way I'm reading it--White House involvement with Wikileaks...

So apparently the White House, using New York Times reporters as its agent (hmmmmm), asked the foreign national holding American secrets to "to redact information that could … harm personnel or threaten operations or security."  This according to Robert Gibbs, the official White House spokesman hack.  So what I'm reading, and correct me if I'm wrong...  

Firstly, reporters from the New York Times are acting as agents of the White House.  Not terribly surprising considering the Journolist and all but does add some weight to the argument that the Main Stream Media is actually the Make Believe Media (from Susan Swift at bigjournalism.com).  When the media is acting as a agent of the government, then the media cannot be trusted.


Secondly, the White House knew about the documents and did nothing more than direct their media-linked agents to try to redact them.  So this makes the White House complicit in the release of the documents.  Which makes them traitors.


Am I off base here??

This is just another line on a long list that leads me to label them traitors.

I don't know the details here, but it doesn't sound to me like the White House was complicit--Knowing the documents were going to be released is not the same as being able to stop the;m. It sounds like they tried for th best they thought they could get under the circumstances, and failed at that.

I think they tried to play it both ways and lost. They didn't want to step up to the plate and directly address the issue with that Australian POS that put the documents up--plausible deniability and all that. So they tried the intermediary route and that bit them on the butt.

Sounds reasonable to me.

What it REALLY does is makes the "Law Enforcement" who are ENABLING them traitors. But NOBODY seems to want to notice that. NONE of the so-called traitors are doing ANYTHING but talking, which they largely have a right to do as a provision of the First Amendment to the Constitution. The actual DOING is ALL done by "Law Enforcement", who took an oath to "...preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution..." but who instead bow and scrape before their Masters and then do whatever they're told. Be sure to thank them appropriateness for the OUTSTANDING job they have done for their country. As for me, I thank God every time he removes another of them from office.
