NYSlimes Leakers in Deep Doo-Doo?

Just a tantalizing tidbit from the Spectator blog:

Lost amid the success by British intelligence and law enforcement in breaking up parts of the airline terror threat is the fact that U.S. intelligence sources were in on the case.


Well, let's just say the NSA should come out of this case looking pretty good. And whoever leaked classified information about international eavesdropping on terrorist conversations should be getting very nervous. This British case just became Exhibit A for how important the listening program is.

S'pose we'll see the Slimes editor being frog-marched out of the building?

UPDATE: Maybe so. Seems that a Fed Judge ruled that private citizens may be prosecuted for revealing classified info. Let us pray.
