— LauraW. From The American Spectator:
Word out of the Defense Intelligence Agency and law enforcement sources has the FBI and the Department of Justice comparing notes and dates on who in the U.S. Senate received national security briefings on both the overseas terrorist prisons and the NSA overseas terrorist monitoring programs, and when those briefings took place.
"The number of Senators who received briefings is not as large as people think," says one law enforcement source. "These were programs with a limited 'Need to Know" list on Capitol Hill."
Federal investigators looking into the leaks of both those programs to the press are zeroing in on the Senate, and are expected to continue to hold interviews of both Senators and their senior staff in the coming days. "This investigation is moving forward at a pretty fast clip," says the law enforcement source. "We're not looking at a two-year probe. We're talking about moving fast."
Senator Jay Rockefeller declined to comment, on account of we never contacted him in the first place.
Nah, me neither.

If you think back on it, not one of the democrat leakers of the countries' secrets has gotten what he deserved (gang rape by tigers on the Capitol steps followed by a month hanging from a lampost on Pennsylvania Av. as an example to others of his kind), or even been run out of Congress.
I really am pissed at this spoiled, ideologically-blinded rich old fart, and I'd be glad to pull the gallows lever on his ass personally, but I don't really see the administration making an example out of him given the President's "get along at all costs" philosophy.
Damn shame for all of us.

Unfortunately, Washington Prowler uses anonymous sources and its quotes always seem a bit too perfect.
While Scooter Libby fights for his freedom over nothing, high-level Democrats will continue to leak damaging information with impunity.
