A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

Treason--right.

As in betrayal?
As in trading the traditional values of your country for the dubious values of torture-based intelligence gathering?

As in betraying the nation's confidence and trust with illegal wiretaps?

As in monitoring the transactions of private citizens under the same warrantless authority?

How about deliberately leaking the identity of a CIA agent so that you can punish a man who knows your "case for war" is nothing but canvas and squirrel $#!7 stretched over toothpicks? Would that be treason?

Oh, I see what you mean. It's only treason if it's NOT done by the President or a member of his staff. Otherwise it's perfectly fine.

By the way: Since anyone in a criminal frame of mind would presumably assume that someone was watching for suspicious money flowing about, is it really as if the information was unknown?

Perhaps the reason this unknown buffoon Peter King is suddenly so loud on the hill is that he needs publicity for the mid-term elections coming up.

Either that or a hydrophobia shot.
