Justice Dept to investigate domestic spying leak

An overdue investigation is about to begin in the United States over the leaks of classified information relating to domestic NSA surveillance.

The AP reports:

The Justice Department has opened an investigation into the leak of classified information about President Bush's secret domestic spying program.

The inquiry focuses on disclosures to The New York Times about warrantless surveillance conducted by the National Security Agency since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, officials said.

The Times revealed the existence of the program two weeks ago in a front-page story that acknowledged the news had been withheld from publication for a year, partly at the request of the administration and partly because the newspaper wanted more time to confirm various aspects of the program.

White House spokesman Trent Duffy said Justice undertook the action on its own, and the president was informed of it on Friday.

"The leaking of classified information is a serious issue. The fact is that al-Qaida's playbook is not printed on Page One and when America's is, it has serious ramifications," Duffy told reporters in Crawford, Texas, where Bush was spending the holidays.

The New York Times is said to not be commenting on the investigation.

Expect all the leftists who were so loud in their demands for investigations and prosecutions over the bogus Plame affair to suddenly change their tune and start supporting leaks as whistleblowing. This will show that they don't actually care about national security. The left's rationale is that if the existence of a leak can be used to attack the Bush administration, the leak is bad, whereas if the content of a leak can be used to attack the Bush administration, the leak must be good ("whistleblowing").

Michelle Malkin has more.

Fox news reports that the FBI is also involved. Typically, the ACLU is screaming blue murder. Anything that harms American capabilities will attract their support.
