While leaks of classified information are often intended to influence or inform US audiences, foreign intelligence services and terrorists are close and voracious readers of the US press. They are keenly alert to revelations of US classified information...Classified intelligence disclosed in the press is the effective equivalent of intelligence gathered through foreign espionage.

Not much to be said on the matter, just figured any one who was interested in the recent events would find it valuable.

Any one have some ideas on the current and past occurances? Perhaps a plausible solution, because the only one I can figure is the resignation of the government.

Enough is enough, it done broke way too many times. Can't fix it no more, time for new one in my opinion.

Oh well what the heck, here are more sources on simular information;

President Clinton on Saturday vetoed a bill that would have criminalized the leaking of government secrets. The legislation, he said, might "chill legitimate activities that are at the heart of a democracy."

Washington -- The practice of leaking information to the media has become "almost second nature" in the U.S. capital, and when it is classified, severe damage to U.S. intelligence capabilities can occur, a Michigan congressman says.

Don't mind me, no one else does, but I figured you all might want to see this also.

New Directive on Leaks in Preparation

The Justice Department is drafting a revision of the controversial National Security Decision Directive 84 on "Safeguarding National Security Information." That Directive, which was issued in 1984 by the Reagan Administration, ignited fierce protests because of its aggressive approach to the unauthorized disclosure of classified information.
