The Plame Affair: Treason, not a "leak" 

So says the father of Johnny "Mike" Spann, another dead American intelligence operative.

"If someone in the Bush administration leaked this, they need to be punished, and they need to be made an example of, because that's not just a leak, that's treason," Spann, of Winfield, Ala., told The Associated Press. "They should appoint an independent counsel so the American people can be sure, and let the chips fall where they may."

As Clyde Prestowitz remarked on ABC

Politics is a contact sport, of course. But even in football, you have rules against illegal contact and I think this one clearly is in that category.

Except that this is not a game....

No, I don't think the White House's "leaks are bad" line is going to stick ....
