Blowing Away Blau

Eli Pollak and I published in our weekly "Media Comment" column at the Jerusalem Post recently on the Uri Blau case.

And now this, from The New York Times, June 8, 2012,

Holder Assigns U.S. Attorneys to Investigate Possible Classified Leaks.

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said in a statement on Friday that two United States attorneys had been assigned to investigate possible unauthorized disclosures of classified information. Ronald C. Machen Jr., the attorney for the District of Columbia, and Rod J. Rosenstein of the District of Maryland will lead separate criminal investigations being conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

“The unauthorized disclosure of classified information can compromise the security of this country and all Americans, and it will not be tolerated,” Mr. Holder said in the statement. Earlier on Friday, President Obama rebutted accusations that his administration leaked information about a terrorist “kill list” and cyberwarfare to make himself look tough in an election year. Without confirming the accuracy of the information — which was revealed in two articles in The New York Times last week — Mr. Obama said that such leaks dealt with the safety of the American people, its military and its allies.

What's good a la US democracy should be good enough for Israel.
