Bill Hobbs has this to say about the CIA name "leak":
After writing that the outing of a covert agent by a federal official is a serious crime punishable by 10 years in prison, The Tennessean says journalistic ethics allow journalists to, in effect, harbor the felon. Sorry, but journalists are not above the law. If a crime was committed, the journalists have a responsibility to provide law enforcement with the evidence they have.

He's got a point, doesn't he? Why go through a $20,000,000 investigation when all that is needed is for one of the six journalists to step up and name the leaker?

Here the Left are caught in a real quandary - find the criminal leak or protect journalist.

I agree with Hobbs; they will do the latter since it will keep the story alive. They don't like the CIA anyway.
