After reading New York Times publisher Arthur O. Sulzberger Junior’s defense of the NYT’s publication of the Pentagon papers during the Vietnam war. It was published in American Society of Newspapers Editors (April 4, 2001), and comparing that defense to the publication of secret NSA information and financial tracking to “follow the money” in fighting terrorism, I have come to conclusion that Sulzberger is willing to sacrifice the lives of America’s sons and daughters, hates America and is anti-Semitic.
The major difference is that the Pentagon papers didn’t directly put the lives of the sons and daughters in jeopardy by their publication, while the opposite it true in the case of the threats posed by Islamic extremist terrorists to America and Israel.
Treason is treason and in my judgement Sulzberger the publisher of the New York Times is guilty of treason.
He writes at the time “Today, our profession faces another version of this leadership moment. Last year, in an all but secret proceeding, Congress passed the Intelligence Authorization Act, which, had it become law, would have criminalized all unauthorized disclosures of classified information.”
Had that act been in effect today, perhaps Israel and America would still be able to defend ourselves against the Islmo-facists and our safety would not have been compromised by Shulzberger and the NYT. The leaker should be found, tried and executed. Shulzberger should be jailed for the rest of his life.
