Quote of the Day

"There is a very serious message here. Before you shine up your American flag lapel pin and affix your patriotism to your sleeve, think about what the impact your actions will have on the security of the American people. Think about whether your partisan obfuscation is creating confidence in the United States in general and the CIA in particular. If not, a true patriot would shut up."

from the testimony of James Marcinkowski, former CIA case office and a former prosecutor, at the unofficial hearing on the Plame/CIA leak held by the Senate Democratic Policy Council and the Democratic side of the House Government Reform Committee

(As David Corn notes, “The Democrats had no choice but to hold such a session because the Republicans in the House and Senate refuse to examine or investigate the leak.”)
