Kentucky Republican Sen. Jim Bunning said on Fox News that those who wrote, published and leaked the story should be tried for treason.
I think this is a good response:
Wisconsin Democratic Rep. David Obey said on the House floor that "both the Chinese Communist government and our own administration appear to be interested in doing almost anything in order to prevent legitimate news organizations from reporting activities on people who govern each country."
I mean, there are a lot of idiot Americans out there who think that the government should do anything it has to to "protect" us, but most Americans just aint in favor of the government prying into our lives and keeping it secret. Really, do we need to be emulating the Soviet Union or the Republic of China? TWM has asked this question before, and the answer the Bush administration has given repeatedly is basically, "Yes."
