Recently I wrote a post called “Thank You, New York Times” pointing out that in the wake of leaked information on the NSA wiretapping program, there were numerous reports of Middle Eastern men buying untraceable, pre-paid cell phones in large quantities. This seemed ominous and the FBI seemed to agree.
Today, Power Line has a follow up. CIA director Porter Goss has confirmed in testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee that the leak did severe damage to their ability to collect the dots of possible terrorist communications.
Michelle Malkin has a post on speculation in Commentary over whether the Times committed a crime by publishing this information. As a non-attorney I won’t speculate.
I will repeat, however:
