Now that Rep Peter King seems to think Glenn Greenwald should be arrested for being a reporter, here's a question for him:
Does he want James Rosen arrested and prosectued under the Espionage Act for helping a State Dept employee leak about North Korea? Just a wild guess--he doesn't. Actually the story says he doesn't.
He may or may not care about the AP reporters who published leaks about the Yemeni spy in 2012, a story that emerged on the fateful Friday May 10th after a year in mothballs, got some life, then disappeared again behind a wall of fresh scandals. But back when that broke he wasn't calling for any reporters to be arrested, just the leakers.
Or, is Snowden indeed a traitor who fled to a communist protectorate to leak about vital US secrets in order to get back at America in some kind of weird-ass Ron Paul revenge scheme? Let's wait and see before declaring someone guilty and committing them to a rhetorical guillotine without trial. After all, rights are part of what this whole mess is supposed to be about. King and others should never take them lightly.
