Top Secret

Yesterday OpinionJournal posted Professor John Eastman’s testimony before a hearing conducted by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. In his testimony Professor Eastman addressed the media’s criminal liability under the espionage laws for publishing classified information. It’s a subject that’s close to my heart; I devoted the Standard column “Exposure” to it. Professor Eastman’s testimony is consistent with, though more expansive than, my analysis. Professor Eastman comments on the letter to the editor by New York Times executive editor Bill Keller defending the Times’s exposure of the NSA monitoring program. As Professor Eastman addresses Keller’s letter, the baloney meets the grinder. (Thanks to Hugh Hewitt.)
