According a Capitol Hill insider, House GOP leadership is preparing to offer a Sense of the House resolution to help clarify Congress’ position with regard to the leaking and subsequent publication of classified information during times of war. The resolution could be introduced as early as tomorrow morning in the House.
Details about the proposed resolution are murky. It is unclear if the resolution will specifically mention the NY Times or not. One hopes the resolution is blunt and to the point, condemning the publication of secret anti-terrorist programs especially during war time.
Let’s hope this insider information proves true. It would be a welcome development.
