A Leak by Any Other Name

Glenn Greenwald hits the ironic nail on the head when he points out that the US Justice Department has a double standard for dealing with leaks of classified information. On one hand there is Bradley Manning, rotting in solitary confinement, and Julian Assange of WikiLeaks, who some US politicians say should be assassinated.

On the other hand, a senior US defense official revealed the contents of an intelligence report about Libya on condition of anonymity because it was classified secret. As Greenwald points out, where’s the urgent leak investigation?
