Commentary: The blurred line between espionage and truth!

NEW YORK (PNN) - February 26, 2012 - Last Wednesday in the White House briefing room, the illegitimate Obama regime’s press secretary, Jay Carney, opened on a somber note, citing the deaths of Marie Colvin and Anthony Shadid, two reporters who died “in order to bring truth” while reporting in Syria.

Jake Tapper, the White House correspondent for ABC News, pointed out that the regime had lauded brave reporting in distant lands more than once and then asked, “How does that square with the fact that this (regime) has been so aggressively trying to stop aggressive journalism in the (Fascist Police States of Amerika) by using the Espionage Act to take whistleblowers to court?”

He then suggested that the bogus Obama regime seemed to believe that “the truth should come out abroad; it shouldn’t come out here.”

Fair point. The illegitimate Obama regime, which promised during its transition to power that it would enhance “whistleblower laws to protect federal workers,” has been more prone than any regime in history in trying to silence and prosecute federal workers.

The Espionage Act, enacted back in 1917 to punish those who gave aid to our enemies, was used three times in all the prior FPSA regimes to bring cases against government officials accused of providing classified information to media. It has been used six times since the illegitimate president took office.

Setting aside the case of Pfc. Bradley Manning, an Army intelligence analyst who is accused of stealing thousands of secret documents, the majority of recent prosecutions seem to have everything to do with administrative secrecy and very little to do with national security.

In case after case, the Espionage Act has been deployed as a kind of ad hoc Official Secrets Act, which is not a law that has ever found traction in the FPSA, a place where the people’s right to know is viewed as superseding the government’s right to hide its business.
