You Decide

UPDATE: One of my frequent stops in the blogosphere is Major Chaz's place at Mind in the Qatar. He has an awesome graphic that tells more than mere words on the who's who in this shell game!

I realize I'm a little late on this one, but I thought I would finally put my two cents in on it.

Mary McCarthy is neither honorable nor should she be praised. She was in a high security position and she intentionally leaked information to the press. If she had questions or concerns about the information, she had a chain of command to go through and should that route not proven satisfactory to her, she could have demanded a congressional investigation. Instead she took the information and gave it to the media.

Espionage is defined as "the practice of gathering, transmitting, or losing through gross negligence information relating to the defense of the U.S. with the intent that or with reason to believe that the information will be used to the injury of the U.S. or the advantage of a foreign nation."

Treason is defined as a "violation of allegiance toward one's country or sovereign, especially the betrayal of one's country by waging war against it or by consciously and purposely acting to aid its enemies."

You decide.
