A worldview is a set of claims that purport to be based on ultimate reality.

Attorney General Gonzales should subpoena Mr. Risen and Mr. Lichtblau

From Jack Kelly, who blogs at Irish Pennants:

It is despicable, but not illegal, for the news media to publish vital national secrets leaked to them. But the leakers have committed a felony. Those who have demanded severe punishment for whoever it was who told reporters that Valerie Plame worked at the CIA have been remarkably forgiving about who leaked the existence of the NSA intercept program, which – like the earlier leak of secret CIA prisons for al-Qaeda bigwigs and unlike the Plame kerfuffle – has done serious harm to our national security. But fortunately, by clapping New York Times reporter Judith Miller in irons until she talked, overzealous special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald has set a valuable precedent. Attorney General Gonzales should subpoena Mr. Risen and Mr. Lichtblau, and have them cited for contempt of court if they do not disclose their source or sources. Maybe they could share Judy Miller’s old cell.
