Leakers

What do we do about Leaks? 


There was a time when people who did that were hung or shot, or shot and then hung.

Today, the disgruntled who leak, have been given very mild and almost rewarding treatment under the Obama Administration. Bradley Manning was given gender reassignment surgery at taxpayer expense and then had his sentence commuted. 

Some people would ask, "why leak?"

Others look at the curious case of Bradley Manning and ask, "why not?"

Irrespective of how it's accomplished, the Trump Administration has a very daunting task ahead if it hopes to curb what is almost a cottage industry with Wikileaks.

My sense is that hanging traitors by the neck from light poles in Washington DC and let the crows peck their eyes out would work, but that's not how things work. Waterboarding suspected leakers would work too. I'm old fashioned that way. The Mexicans and the Egyptians have a way of getting at the truth. I've had experience with both nations in practical terms. Maybe they could do it for us on a contract basis - being members of a minority group, it would be politically correct!! Of course under the progressive doctrine of racial and national fluidity - we are all Egyptians and Mexicans.
