Vote Dem or die

Power Line passes on a very astute observation from Ace of Spades:
It's blackmail, pure and simple. Either let a Democrat into the White House, or we will continue to sabotage American security and, in effect, kill Americans. We will keep secrets when a Democrat is in office, but not a Republican. So we offer the American people a choice: Let the politicians we favor run the country, or we will help Al Qaeda murder you.

He's absolutely right. As Don Luskin pointed out last week, the Times' justification for publishing the story was not directed at the government, but rather the president. Hugh Hewitt (and a lot of others) has a series of posts on the excuses offered by Keller and McManus.

What it boils down to is real simple -- they know the program was legal and effective. They have no evidence that it was abused in any way. Their justification rests solely on the fact that George Bush is president. In their sick, twisted minds, Bush as president means that any secret program is a potential threat to America. With Bush as president, they believe that there should be no secrets. Because they really, really believe that Congressman Murtha is correct when he says that the US is the biggest threat to world peace.
