Hey Peter King, remember the First Amendment?

Lawmaker wants feds to probe N.Y. Times

Here, I'll quote the whole thing for you:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

See that part I put in bold? Yeah, that means you don't get to threaten them with investigations.

Are you a U.S. Citizen? You are obviously a young individual who does not understand what war time means to our nation. What you are suggesting is that the press should be able to print anything that is wishes....including violating homeland security operations. The Islamic radicals must love you! Perhaps we should allow New York Times to publish all planned military operations throughout the world. Why not? According to you, freedom of the press means let's print everything, even if it is not in the best interest of our nation and could possibly jeapordize lives of our fellow Americans.
Grow up, lady!

you've gotta love trolls like this one. The Republicans operate on a "it's not our fault for doing it--it's your fault for pointing it out" mentality when it comes to the unconstitutional.

And oh yes, theo--where was your outrage when Tom Ridge started talking about the information we received from Noor Khan to justify raising the terror alert level during the 2004 Democratic Convention? Yeah, if the Administration hadn't outed Noor Khan--whom Al-Qaeda didn't know we had turned--we could have probably prevented the London bombings.

As it was, London and Karachi had to make an immediate raid--a lot earlier than they wanted to--simply so that the Bush administration could pull a political ploy. Turns out that lots of the terrorists got away, and many others had to be released due to lack of evidence.

I dare say that sure beats the disclosure of potentially illegal information concerning terrorist financing--as if the terrorist organizations don't already know that we're doing everything in our power to monitor their communications and banking activity? OHMYGOD! How stupid do you think they are? This isn't the Miami Seven we're talking about, it's Al-Qaeda, right?

You're a complete and total tool.
